INTERESTING THINGS from the
CRIMINAL CODE OF CANADA
RUNNING A COMMON BAWDY HOUSE: the words used to describe the operation of a ‘house of ill-repute’, a ‘brothel’, a ‘whorehouse’, simply could not be more surprising to hear in the 21st century. (Certainly an unanticipated, and functionally comedic criminal act.)
PERFORMING A LEWD ACT IN A PUBLIC PLACE: need I elaborate further?
COMMUNICATING FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROSTITUTION: This criminal charge implies something that is nonsensical and absurd: THE ACT OF PROSTITUTION-[exchanging money for sexual…congress]-IS NOT ILLEGAL, HOWEVER, TALKING ABOUT IT (a.k.a. communicating): IS ILLEGAL…?
(according to the Criminal Code of Canada):<> You can divorce your spouse, but you can never divorce your in-laws‘…??? I have heard this, so long ago, that I do not recall the exact source, however from the structure of Canadian society, it seems likely…(any potential verification of truth or mendacity, in regard to this statement would, of course, be appreciated).
