So, it's as though she thinks the "old men" are the victims here? This has to be one of the most backward of mentalities I've seen from an attorney.

how does Lauryn Hill get sent to corrective classes for speaking on the music industry, yet this lady does not get any sort of punishment? this is one of the most nasty lines of thinking I can conceive. It makes a lot of sense to lower the age of consent so the perveted old men can stop receiving punishments at the expense of young children...I smell a scandal cooking.

I wondered when pedos would be next to be accepted along with homos.
guess it is beginning to happen in my lifetime.
It is now illegal for adults in Canada to have sex with a partner under the age of 16, one of the new provisions of the Tories' violent crime law that came into effect on Thursday.
The Tackling Violent Crime Act raises the legal age of sexual consent in Canada to 16 from 14, the first time it has been raised since 1892.
But the law includes a "close-in-age exception," meaning 14- and 15-year-olds can have sex with someone who is less than five years older.
The Tories said they raised the age, in part, to deal with internet predators. The new law puts Canada's age of consent in line with those in Britain, Australia and most of the United States.
