Saskatchewan MLA exits caucus over drug allegations

Saskatchewan MLA exits caucus over drug allegations

Now really, this is not news - it's a story that has been playing out over the past few weeks. What has bothered me about the story isn't the allegations - I'm sure that Mr. LeClerc will be exonerated - it's the way that the sex is portrayed. "Illicit homosexual sex" must be a little bit different than what I'm thinking of, but to my knowledge homosexual sex isn't "unlawful" or "not permitted". It isn't illegal to change or "weed out" partners. If it is, then that law should be changed. Quite simply, it doesn't matter what kind of sex Mr. LeClerc was allegedly having, it only really comes down to whether or not Mr. LeClerc used drugs, and even if the evidence shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was no drug use, it still won't get enough press to counteract the damage caused.

I hope the CBC has a good lawyer if that turns out to be the case.
