In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - October 29, 2014

Senators continue their review of the federal government's proposed prostitution legislation. Bill C-36 was tabled in June in response to the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision last December to strike down three key provisions of the country’s prostitution laws. The committee held extensive pre-study meetings on the bill in September before it was introduced in the Senate. Senators heard from 50 witnesses during their all-day hearings. Quebec City police officer Bernard Lerhe, University of Guelph professor emeritus Edward Herold, Manitoba Justice Minister Andrew Swan, and Barbara Gosse from the Canadian Women's Foundation offer their perspectives.
