The Conservatives are Spending Millions Attacking Justin Trudeau.
Be weary of Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. They've screwed up our oil industy, slowed the economy and hurt our currency overseas. Despite the Supreme Court ruling, the Conservatives brought in Bill C-36 anyway.

Drake has given Toronto a New Sexy Name: The 6.
Drake may succeed where Rob Ford and others have failed. He might be able in propel Toronto into becoming one of the coolest and sexiest cities in the world. He certainly gives off a different vibe than John Tory, David Miller, Rob Ford or Mel Lastman.
Drake appears to truly love his metropolis. Althought his teenage years in Toronto were difficult, he likes to sing and talk about Toronto. The diverse nature of the city must be appealing to him. It is likely he enjoys the massage parlours as well when Rihanna is not around.
And don't forget Drake's own words: "I'm Black and I'm Jewish"
Toronto's Rub and Tug Movie was No Masterpiece.
Wanting more free time for himself, Lawrence, the owner of a full body massage parlor, hires a new manager for the store. The person he hires for the job is Conrad, a seemingly nice but feckless man. Conrad's main responsibility as manager is to ensure that the three masseuses working there are not doing full service jobs, i.e. having sex with the clients, otherwise the police could shut the store down. Lawrence is sure the three are performing full service jobs so that they can make more money. Those three are cynical and acerbic tongued Betty who has a longer term financial plan for her life beyond her current work, nipple fetishist. Lea who is hiding her profession from her boyfriend Henry, and Asian Cindy, a naive woman who is working in Canada illegally. Cindy is hoping to find a Canadian husband - even one in a marriage of convenience - so that she can stay in Canada and make a decent living to support her family back home.
I'm afraid this one is pretty dreadful, despite several good performances and generally competent acting-for-the-camera direction. It's a first and last attempt by writer-director Soo Lyu. "Rub and Tug" (2002) is one of the unfortunate by-products of Canada's program to promote home-grown film-making. While the program encourages worthwhile efforts like "New Waterford Girl" it opens the door for untalented novices like Lyu who did not have to aggressively pitch this project but was green-lighted without an adequate examination of her script or her credentials. You don't mind the low budget because the shabby production design, bad lighting, poor audio, and dreary docu-style shot selection is consistent with the subject matter; the workers in Canadian massage parlors. But the dialogue and the plotting doesn't give the actors anything to work with, the editor much to assemble, or a viewer any mental challenge other than suspension of disbelief. When your story is this simplistic the last thing you need is a muddled storytelling technique; even though nothing happens, the movie is hard to follow and point-of-view impossible to pin down. Don McKellar's performance as Conrad is several notches below his similar characterization in "Exotica". Lindy Booth's Lea is her standard quirky airhead; as always she is likable but here she is little else. Kira Clavell's Cindy is a pleasant surprise, a kind of Asian Shelley Duval. The only other role of any consequence, Tara Spencer-Nairn's street-wise Betty, more than cancels out her excellent performance in "New Waterford Girl". Her shallow performance in "Rub and Tug" should curtail any tendency to seek out other films in which she has appeared; unless you need further confirmation of "Waterford" director Alan Moyle's skill in working with young actors. You quickly conclude that Lyu's reptilian brain cannot grasp concepts like plot complexity, so the need to insert a lazy and lame "deus ex machina" device toward the end is hardly a surprise. Still it could be worse, the listless story has so little internal logic anyway that the unlikely ending is not as painful as would normally be the case. Seems to be a very true-to-life portrayal of life in a body rub parlor. The movie tries not to be judgemental about the work these women do, but does present it from their point of view. A lot of daily challenges, of going far enough without going too far, keeping it legal, etc. Don McKellar was brilliant as the nerdy manager of the parlor, who seemed to be in way over his head with this job. He gradually got very good at this job in a big way. There's a very twisted humorous ending that came out of nowhere. Extremely imaginative. It sort of kept true to the nature of these people, where nothing is as it seems on the surface.
The Supreme Court of Canada Has Ruled All Aspects Of Prostitution Legal
This decision does not overrule the right of municiplities to regulate the skin trade. Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton and Winnipeg are likely to react quickly. Judging by recent history, the licensing WILL NOT BE CONSISTENT across Canada.
Toronto may allow licensed brothels when a new mayor is elected in 2018. Although many deny it, the licensing of massage parlours around Toronto has been very effective. The same system could be extended to brothels without much effort.
No meaningful decision is possible under the current lame duck regime at Toronto City Hall. The lack of leadership extends across the adult industries as well. The sexworker groups do not agree on matters. Neither do the body rub, holistic spa and strip club owners. The government bodies also are in disagreement with each other. The departments at city hall can not work together. The police across Canada remains highly fractured. In this political climate, it is best to keep the laws as simple as possible.
