Canada's Supreme Court on Friday struck down key portions of a law that effectively criminalized prostitution by banning brothels and soliciting on the street, declaring this disproportionate.

But it stayed its ruling for one year to allow Parliament to consider whether or not impose other limits on where and how prostitution may be conducted.
