B.C. court rebuffs sex-group argument

A group that advances the cause of multiple sex partners has been rejected by the B.C. Supreme Court.

The Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association went to court wondering if it might be swept up in the federal and provincial government’s constitutional test of the law that prohibits polygamy.

The group — which advocates consensual multiple relationships — wanted to force the governments to clarify if it might be caught in the law that bans multiple marriages.

But B.C. Supreme Court Robert Bauman ruled the governments don’t have to disclose their arguments until presenting them in court, noting the association or its members aren’t accused of a criminal proceeding.
