Abstract: The article discusses the three rarely prosecuted offences in the Criminal Code of Canada. As stated, these offences were enacted in the late 1800s and these are blasphemous libel, defamatory libel and corrupting children. It informs that blasphemy has been a crime in Quebec and was a mechanism for social control, defamatory libel has been a crime in 1275 and was enacted to prevent false rumors, and corrupting children was enacted in 1918 to prevent children's adultery or sexual immortality.
