If Virginia Is For Lovers . . .

. . . then Canada is now for fuckers, particularly of the group grope type. Yesterday the Supreme Court of Canada handed down opinions in two cases that, according to the Toronto Globe and Mail "redefines obscenity." Basically, the Court, with two dissenters (both French-Canadian, for whatever that's worth), concluded that two private sex clubs could not be convicted of violating obscenity laws. As the parties involved were all consenting adults there was no "harm" that could rightfully be criminalized. Sounds like logic right out of On Liberty to me, which is not a bad thing. May it cross the border undetected, like so many other things.
