Now Magazine’s adult classifieds may now be illegal
—The number of pages of advertisements for various kinds of sexual services in last week’s 95-page issue of Now Magazine. The ads, which have long been a source of revenue for the alt-weekly, are now suddenly of questionable legality because of Bill C-36. In a note published on Sunday, Alice Klein, Now’s editor and CEO, says that the magazine will continue printing adult classifieds. She believes that the new law’s specific wording creates exceptions for magazines that publish only certain kinds of sex ads.
