Well Said (Whatever It Means)

George Jonas on the Ontario prostitution ruling:

Judge Himel has flushed down the toilet the “gotcha” charges with which the law surrounded the oldest profession. Will they clog the pipes? Will there be a mess in the bathroom? Will governments try to fish them out again?

The state’s legal plumbers are standing by. I’m optimistic. Once a judge speaks up for Charter-protected vices, a judge speaking up for Charter-protected virtues can’t be far behind.
