Elliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner say, “Hallelujah”. Canada, here we a cum.
Prostitution has been legal for some time, here in Canada. Solicitation in a public place remains illegal (i.e. street hooking is verboten). It was already legal for prostitutes to visit “clients” at their hotel room, etc. All that this changes is that it will also be legal for prostitutes to “entertain” at a brothel. They will also be able to hire bodyguards.
Overall, IMHO it looks like a reasonable ruling. It is intended to improve safety for the women. We're pretty sensitive here about the dangers prostitutes face, ever since the “missing women” thing in Vancouver came to light. (A sick @#*$* killed at least 52 prostitutes, and fed many of them to his pigs.)
