Justice and Human Rights – July 9, 2014 – Part 2

The committee holds its third day of hearings on the government’s proposed prostitution legislation. Bill C-36 was tabled in early 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 Court gave the government one year to produce new legislation. MPs hear from Bridget Perrier (Sextrade101), Chris Atchison (University of Victoria), Michelle Miller (Resist Exploitation, Embrace Dignity (REED), lawyer Georgialee Lang and Elizabeth Wilson (Prostitutes Involved, Empowered, Cogent – Edmonton).
