To cub or not to cub?

by
As odd as it may seem, believe it or not, this isn't about cub porn, but about perception- Namely, writing about a species of fur that have shorter lives, and reach maturity at a much younger age than humans-- That is, they could be adults at 9 or 10, rather than 18 or 21.

A friend of mine is actually reluctant to post his stories, because where he's from- Canada- they have a ban on sexual works involving those who are legally underage, yet despite his characters' ages, they're adults who mature faster and live much shorter lives that humans or human-scale furries. Now, this being Inkbunny, he could, regardless whether it is or isn't cub, but because he's from Canada, even though the servers aren't, he's worried that he'll violate law by posting the stories. (A shame, too- He's really very good!)

This, of course, brings up many things- Age acceleration or regression, rapidly-maturing clones or artificial lifeforms... You name it!

So, then..... I think he should post 'em- What would you say?

I think he should post them.  but if he does not feel comfortable posting. you might ask him if you could post one for him.
this way he could see what kind of reaction he would get.

The problems with that is 1, the "By You, For You" clause. It wouldn't be mine to post! And 2, he's good, and not new to writing- The concern isn't so much the policy of Inkbunny, but Canadian law, since he's Canadian, even though the servers aren't. What I think probably should be done is talk to an admin- One checks in on me here from time to time, and is really nice to talk to, and maybe help with his quandry. Like I said, I also think he should post 'em, since he demonstrates these furs are already adults at what we would consider young ages, rather than actually being minors engaging in adult activities. It's the crazy Canadian laws that don't distinguish fiction from reality that scare him from posting, and I think he should.

BTW, if you haven't noticed, not all that many follow me here, so I really don't have all that much weight, even though I'm equally a veteran of this community.

What does Canada law say about this exactly?  Does it give specific ages?  Is it specifically aimed at humans as portrayed in fiction?  Or does it only apply to characters who are underage?  After all, a 14-year-old of a species that hits maturity (both mental and physical) at 10 years is not underaged and would, hypothetically, be immune from Canadian laws concerning the underaged.
