Asian Women Coalition Ending Prostitution calls for a tailored approach that takes into account sex and race equality principles. The proposed legislation would be better aligned with our Charter Rights and Freedoms if it contained provisions to stop arresting women who are prostituted,no matter where the exploitation takes place, while still allowing police and our criminal justice system to continue to address the source of the harm. However, we recognize the positive step forward in that both the Supreme Court of Canada and the proposed legislation recognize the dangers inherent to prostitution for women. It is positive that the draft of Bill C-36 attempts to address the cause of the harm in prostitution done by the buyers, sellers and profiteers. The proposed legislation sends a clear message that sexual exploitation is not acceptable.
