Following up on Faye’s post, this from ARPA Canada:
The Supreme Court of Canada has just declared that the prostitution laws in Canada are unconstitutional. A saving grace in the ruling however is that they have suspended their declaration of invalidity by one year, meaning that the current law remains valid until December of next year, giving our federal government time to rewrite the law.
It means that there is an opportunity for Parliament to enact legislation that could actually protect women. Here’s hoping. See more on this issue here, including a 6 minute interview with André Schutten, General Legal Counsel and Ontario Director for ARPA.by
