Prostitution Laws

December 23, 2013 by  

Prostitution Laws, The Conservative government is giving its strongest signal yet it will replace the prostitution laws struck down by the Supreme Court of Canada with new measures.

“(Justice) Minister (Peter) MacKay can count on my full support to implement an appropriate response to that decision,” Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said Sunday on CTV.

He says he’s “disappointed” with Friday’s unanimous declaration that Canada’s bans on brothels, communicating for the purpose of prostitution and living off its profits are unconstitutional.

The Supreme Court concluded the current laws violate hookers’ right to security of the person, but Blaney says the government will find another way to help women because prostitution turns people “into real modern slaves.”

“That’s what prostitution, in many cases, is all about,” he said. “This is abusing women, turning them into, not only human trafficking (victims), but into drug (addicts), into removing sometimes their own identity and using them in a way that is despicable.”

Blaney didn’t back any specific policy, but Conservative Party members took a definite stance on the issue at their Calgary convention last month.
