Conservative Government Tables New Prostitution Legislation

Posted by Matt on June 04, 2014         Tagged with: prostitution

When the SCC declared the existing Criminal Code provisions respecting the sale of sex invalid, they postponed that declaration of invalidity for a year to give the Conservative government time to respond with some new laws. And now the government has answered that call.

A new bill tabled in Parliament, named the The Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act, targets johns and pimps but also criminalizes the sale of sex in areas in which children could reasonably be expected to be present.

I haven't read the full text of the bill yet so for now I'll just leave you with that link.
