Re: “Prostitues ftw!

Prostitution is legal in Canada, it is the activities surrounding it that are illegal (i.e. solicitation, etc...) Sex Workers and their allies in Canada are calling for decrimminalization, not legalization. Legalization still treats sex work as a vice that needs to be controlled and has not shown to decrease the violence that occurs against sex workers. decriminalization, on the other hand, strikes down our current archaic laws and allows our police to focus more on violent crimes, not arresting sex workers. It gives sex workers control, and creates safer environments and communities (i.e. in a decrimminalization scenerio laws such as those around the trafficking of children and youth can be strengthened as they were in New Zealand). i would suggest taking a look at SPOC.ca in Toronto or even Stepping Stone in Halifax www.steppingstonens.ca. Stepping Stone has some great info on sex worker myths vs. realities and info on one of the biggest challenges facing local sex workers which is boundaries that police place them on. Basically sex workers are banned from entire sections of the city after release of solicitation charge and are being arrested on their way to the doctor or legal appointments, not on the stroll.
