Sex-trade advocates take aim at prostitution laws

An advocacy group representing Vancouver sex-trade workers is calling for a repeal of Canada’s prostitution laws to make life safer for street prostitutes.
The PIVOT Legal Society is making its case before a parliamentary sub-committee holding hearings in Vancouver Tuesday and Wednesday, seeking input on the sex trade in Canada.
Prostitution is legal in Canada, but communicating for the purpose of prostitution is not. Brothels are also illegal.
