By Canada using a parliamentary system with branches of government, it allows for roles and responsibilities to be shared amongst others, which allows for the benefit of seeing different aspects of things in multiple opinions of various people.

Nevada’s legal prostitution areas will be used as a prime example as to the many benefits of nationwide legalization such as decreased sexual violence crime rates, economic development, health benefits and protection of the workers, and optimal laws that at the very least decriminalize organized prostitution. In this paper, I challenge to change the perception of prostitution in today’s society by providing many of the most common arguments used to defend it, so that an unbiased judgment may finally be considered in the legalization and decriminalization of prostitution in organized sanctions such as brothels and businesses promoting sex (i.e: Strip clubs, massage parlors, and fetish clubs). Many argue that prostitution should remain illegal because it invokes and will promote sexual violence. But, is prostitution actually violent? Researchers Barbara G. Brents and Kathryn Hausbeck of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas answer this question in their article Violence and Legalized Brothel Prostitution in Nevada by stating “If by violence we mean actual physical harm, our research in brothels indicates that it is not.
Democracy is more than merely a system of government. It is a culture – one that promises equal rights and opportunity to all members of society. Democracy can also be viewed as balancing the self-interests of one with the common good of the entire nation. In order to ensure our democratic rights are maintained and this lofty balance remains in tact, measures have been taken to protect the system we pride ourselves upon. There are two sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms that were implemented to do just this.
However, basic groceries are already exempted from this.

They relied on the democratic government of England and to some extent to those of the United States, which guaranteed equal rights. Their vision of national identity included English as the primary language and the English culture as the standard for all of Canada. Two different types of nationalisms were then formed. The first was an ethnic nationalism in which French-speaking citizen felt that they owed their loyalty to the French community. The second was a civic nationalism in which the English-speaking citizens felt that they owed their loyalty to the entire nation of Canada (Conlogue, 21).

According to Dicey, the rule of law is one of the fundamental principles of The English constitution; he gave three meanings of the concept of rule of law. Dicey summarized the rule of law under three captions.

In other words, all government actions must be authorized by law." (Reference in bibliography) Dicey states that rule of law means the absolute supremacy or predominance of regular law as opposed to the influence of arbitrary power or wide discretionary power.
