This is “Canada without abortion, by choice.” So there’s some libertarian in me. You can not care for laws on abortion and still be profoundly against abortion, campaigning against it in the culture and with your friends.
This libertarian moment comes courtesy of a different story. Don’t bother clicking on the link unless you feel you must. It’s the story of a porn star in Gatineau, who had sex with 25 men in one night to pay for breast implants. The mayor of Gatineau was perplexed about this, and tried to stop the event.
To which the “adult entertainer” responded as follows:
He called the cops. He called everybody, but he couldn’t do anything. We know the law. We respect all the law,” de la Seine said. “We deal with Bell, we deal with Videotron, we deal with Telus because we are a supplier of porn movies for TV stations. And every movie we do has to have the stamp of the CRTC, so we can’t just do wrong things.”
So the CRTC approves? Why didn’t you just tell me that? Clearly, you “can’t just do wrong things.” Forgive me for thinking you were a greasy, conscience-free, selfish lech. I was wrong. You deal with Bell and Telus and, wait for it, the CRTC.
The only thing worse would be to be one of the mealy-mouthed bureacrats on the CRTC panel.by
