Canada's top court to rule on sex workers

Supreme Court has been asked to uphold the constitutionality of the country's prostitution law.

    Canada's Supreme Court is hearing a case that could lead to the full or partial legalisation of prostitution.

    Last year, a court in Ontario province ruled that much of the country's anti-prostitution laws were unconstitutional.

    The government appealed against that verdict.
