Ont. Superior Court strikes down 3 federal prostitution laws

TORONTO An Ontario Superior Court ruled Tuesday that three federal prostitution laws are unconstitutional, paving the way for the decriminalization of the sex-trade industry in Canada.


The landmark ruling, for now, only strikes down the laws in Ontario, but if it survives an appeal, it will allow for other municipalities and jurisdictions in Canada to follow suit.


In a 131-page ruling, Justice Susan Himel wrote that the laws in the Criminal Code prohibiting sex-trade workers from running a bawdy house, communicating for the purpose of prostitution and living off the avails of prostitution, put their lives at risk.


"These laws, individually and together, force prostitutes to choose between their liberty interest and their right to security of the person as protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms," she said in a decision that has been on reserve for more than a year.


Prostitution is not illegal in Canada. However, many aspects of prostitution have been criminalized by Parliament.


The provisions struck down by the judge relate to adult prostitution and do not affect prohibitions involving people under 18 or measures to prosecute pimps in the sex trade.
