Ottawa – Canada’s top court struck down major prostitution restrictions on Friday. As reported by Reuters, the restrictions struck down by the Supreme Court of Canada’s 9-0 decision included bans on brothels and other laws deemed unconstitutional due to their being in violation of the safety of prostitutes.

As noted in the report, although prostitution is legal in Canada, many of the activities related to have been outlawed.

Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin is quoted by Reuters as writing in the decision, “The impugned laws deprive people engaged in a risky, but legal, activity of the means to protect themselves against those risks… It makes no difference that the conduct of pimps and johns is the immediate source of the harms suffered by prostitutes.”

The decision is reportedly set to take effect in one year.
