34 years after Canada's Supreme Court upheld the country's anti-prositution laws, the highest court has struck down the nation's three prosititution-related laws in their entirety in a unanimous 9-0 ruling. Following the US' demand for minimum wage for strippers, AP reports Canada's ruling is a victory for sex workers seeking safer working conditions because it found the laws violated the charter guarantee to life, liberty, and security of the prison.

Good comment

Good for you, Canada!

But watch closely now. Any day now the conservatives will come back with the standard bullshit arguments: "All prostitution abuses women", "it opens the door for underage prostitution", "these women are trafficked", etc.

Meanwhile your socks were sewn by a 14 year old in a sweat shop in Sri Lanka, your tuna was caught by a 40 year old Burmese slave on a fishing boat, your fruit was picked by an illegal immigrant who lives in a basement with 50 others and your chocolate comes from coca beans picked by a 10 year old girl in Ivory Coast who is chained to her basket. ...But sex work in some Toronto suburb is apparently the root of all evil.

hug.gif Good morning Shadow! Good for Canada! It's not called the world's oldest profession for no reason.
It, like smoking herb, is not going to go away no matter how mach time the idiots devote to serving up lawmaking about the issues.
It's time politicians grow the hell up. You can not legislate morality.

Good for Canada. Lets face it, better to have sex workers that some frustrated person can visit than them going and raping someone. coffeetime.gif

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Back in the 1800s there was a brothel here in town. I guess most respectable towns had one. There was also I don't remember how many bars, but waaaay more than you'll find today. 13.gif

Those frustrated men rape and beat those prostitutes. Some sex trade workers must wonder before going to work, "Is tonight is the night I die?" sad2.gif And it should be called the 'oldest oppression'.

Criminalizing it drives it underground and makes it worse for women.

I agree with you Shadow. As in Sweden, I understand that legalizing it has actually reduced prostitution.

In Germany,

“We have laws against pimping and trafficking but it is difficult for the police to prove a case because you need the testimony of the victim. And that is not easy to get from these vulnerable women.”

It just never seems to work to the betterment of the prostitutes, no matter if it's legal or not. sad2.gif

I can see what you mean...although it's still better off for the prostitutes in not being arrested all the time. When they get out many are beaten even worse for getting caught and costing their pimps money in legal fees and lost revenues. They also will still be in real danger if it's just allowed in the street like now. Will there be brothels like in Nevada? If so...it's still gonna be iilegal on the street just like it is now. There's only so many brothels that can employ just so many hos. Many street hos wouldn't even be able to pass disease screenings in order to get a brothel job so will still street hook. Brothel employment comes with stipulations that many to most street hos will never be able to go by. I also looked at the arrests as being a potential savior for those that wanted out of their drug and pimp addled lives. Time will tell who it actually helps the most.dunno.gif
