Resolution 1998.02 Deviant Sex Establishments/Businesses
Whereas, venues for deviant sexual behaviour are being established in our communities; and
Whereas, the current bawdy-house laws in the Criminal Code of Canada are not specific enough and court cases against such establishment/businesses can be dismissed because they are judged to be within the community standards of tolerance; therefore be it
Resolved, that the national council of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada, in 78th annual national convention assembled, urge its members to:
- become aware of the current bawdy-house laws in the Criminal Code of Canada
- become active in establishing acceptable standards of tolerance in their own communities, particularly in regard to deviant sex establishments/businesses
- take action necessary to make these standards known to their municipal authorities
- contact municipal authorities regarding cases of non-compliance to the community standards.
