    I’m sure these swingers aren’t engaging in any of that.

    Obviously prostitution is illegal in the US, but consensual group sex isn't.

    But I"m just shocked that it was illegal in Canada.

    Swinging isn't generally illegal (except to the extent that adultery, etc is illegal.) However, swing clubs are a different matter entirely.

    Okay, I read it wrong. I thought they said group sex in general was illegal.

    The way I understand the situation, is that group sex was legal, but clubs specializing in group sex weren't. Now, it is legal to run a club specifically for group sex.

    Why are English speakers the ones that are outraged and the french speakers, for the most part, unconcerned?

    I don't get the "why" of the huge cultural difference in this case.

    Yeah, but you'd better yell "Je viens!" or "Mon Dieu" or "Plus vite!" or the Language Police will come get you.

    There has been no outrage in this part of english speaking canada. Haven't seen much evidence of outrage anywhere else either. Of course, there might be some in Toronto as most Torontonians are Amish who drive cars :p

    The significance of the decision is the redefinition of "community standards" from the subjective (morality) to the objective (causing harm). In Saskatchewan, for example, it is illegal to serve alcohol in a strip club. Either on their own legal, but a barrier, effectively to strip bars. This ruling may open the Saskatchewan law to another challenge.

    A barrier to strip clubs? Seriously? There are towns all across the US who have strip clubs in which alcohol isn't served. Usually the way it works is if the girls get all the way nude, no alcohol but if they wear g-strings and/or pasties, then they can serve alcohol.

    Yeah, I know, it's retarded.

    Well, there are no permanent strip clubs in the province. We get the occasional travelling roadshow come through for a day or two then move on. So it must be some sort of a barrier. There was a two year hiatus in th elaw 5-6 years as a provincial court overturned it before the Supreme Court reinstated it, and a club started here in Saskatoon, did OK but not screamingingly well.
