The Alberta Court of Queen's Bench has determined that the Alberta Protection of Children Involved in Prostitution Act is not in violation of the Constitution. This decision overturns the ruling of the Provincial Court, which held that the Act infringes the rights articulated in sections 7, 8, and 9 of the Charter.
