Thank you. We'll look forward to a brief from you on this matter.
That was a slight request to my friend and colleague Dean Leckey.
This question is for Dean Leckey and Professor Hooper—and to Professor Kinsman, should you wish. Suppose the government could carve out the bawdy house provisions along a community standard that would keep the non-consensual harm provisions—as rewritten by the court—on the books, and then have a schedule written up for cabinet that could become part of the expungements to legislation to allow people such as Ron Rosenes and the some 1,300 people that Mr. Kinsman and others have indicated have criminal records from 1968 to 2004 for having been arrested on bawdy house laws.
If the government could do that, and attach that schedule to the expungement legislation allowing those men to have their records repealed, would it then be fine—according to you—to leave the remnants of bawdy house provisions on the books as non-consensual harm offences?
