On June 13, 2013, the Supreme Court of Canada heard from 14 interveners as it considers a landmark case on the laws surrounding prostitution. Prostitution victimizes and exploits women and girls and forces those who have few choices into a world of fewer choices.
Canada's sleepy and dysfunctional "board of directors/content providers", aka its Senate, thrives without justification and without an audience. Its shareholders, and CEO Stephen Harper, disdain the place and yet it continues. The best course of action is for our Prime Minister to become the political equivalent of a hedge fund manager. His job is to enhance shareholder value and there's no better course of action than to ignore threats of litigation by Quebec, stop the losses to reputation and treasure and shut this national embarrassment down immediately.
