A public space or a public place is a place where anyone has a right to come without being excluded because of economic or social conditions, although this may not always be the case.
In a public space, known as a public forum (legal), the government cannot usually limit one's speech beyond what is reasonable (that is, screaming epithets at passers-by can be stopped; prosteletyzing one's religion probably cannot).

 BCCLA Position Paper: Being drunk in a public place, 1990
Two potential justifications have been identified: (a) Drunks are often a nuisance, often create disturbances, and are often a danger to others, and (b) drunks are often a danger to themselves—either by wandering into traffic, by being unable to defend themselves against being mugged or assaulted or by being subject ot the elements.
A law that makes it an offence to be drunk in a public place, where it clearly ought not to be an offence, is used to detain persons.
Section 81(1) is also repugnant, for although it does not make it a crime to be drunk in a public place, the practical effect is the same.
