Taxpayer-funded study recommends repealing law that bans polygamy in Canada

OTTAWA (CP) - A new study for the federal Justice Department says Canada should get rid of its law banning polygamy, and change other legislation to help women and children living in such multiple-spouse relationships.
"Criminalization does not address the harms associated with valid foreign polygamous marriages and plural unions, in particular the harms to women," says the report, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act. "The report therefore recommends that this provision be repealed."
The research paper is part of a controversial $150,000 polygamy project, launched a year ago and paid for by the Justice Department and Status of Women Canada.
The paper by three law professors at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., argues that Sec. 293 of the Criminal Code banning polygamy serves no useful purpose and in any case is rarely prosecuted.
Instead, Canadian laws should be changed to better accommodate the problems of women in polygamous marriages, providing them clearer spousal support and inheritance rights.

I could see them protecting people from another country in plural marriages,but they need to word it clearly and precisely so that some left leaning activist judge can't " re interpret" the law. Lie they seem to do at the drop of a hat.
This one says that it is because of the feminists

Bah, and I find your rhetoric equally vacuous. Since we've been pursuing this agenda, the number of correlations that spring to the fore are too numerous to list.We've seen divorce rising, morality falling, violent crime rising, sanity falling, breakups and breakdowns and an ever increasing relliance are bigger and more bloated government.I do not blame women for any of these things, however, and in this you are quite misguided. This is a concerted effort, from globalist forces, far greater than any room full of angry feminists. This is a United Nations depopulation plan, and to hell with the consequences.I find it interesting, that while feminism can be correlated so very strongly with child poverty, broken families, and runaway divorce rates, that someone, as educated as yourself, would not even at least consider what the longterm ramifications of this policy making have been. In fact, we seem, as a society, wholly unable and unwilling to do so.
