Decriminalization of Sex Work in Ontario

26 Oct

Amy Lebovitch is a sex worker and sex worker rights activist with Sex Professionals of Canada.  She is also one of three plaintifs named in the Charter Challenge.  On September 28 2010 Justice Susan Himel ruled that following laws violated sex workers rights:

a) Communicating for the purposes of prostitution in a public place

b) Keeping a common bawdy house

c) Living off the avails of prostitution

In this interview we discuss the current legal situation, what these laws mean for sex workers, debunk myths about sex workers, discuss why we’re fighting for decriminalization as opposed to legalization, and what it means to be an ally to sex wokers.
