Please see our Commenting Policy for more. People connected to the industry say the Jan. Wesley argues that Levesque, who was a sex worker, was placed in danger by the stricter laws governing prostitution.
BeforeWesley explained, a man could pay a woman to have sex in a private hotel room and no one was committing a crime. But under Bill C, purchasing sex or benefiting from the selling of sex is illegal. Sex workers cannot advertise sexual services, and potential clients cannot communicate with a prostitute in any way, or in any place, for the purposes of buying sex. Although the law protects the sex worker from criminal liability, clients or the employer, such as a massage parlour, face arrest and prosecution.
Instead of screaming or running out of the room to the front desk, sex workers have learned to attempt to take care of hostile situations on their own.
Before, prostitutes could lean on a car window and negotiate services and a price with a client. But now, Wesley said, the act of negotiating services is illegal. Local media reported that Gallese had been banned from the massage parlour where Levesque worked after he had been aggressive. Wesley says massage parlour owners across Quebec are reluctant to report dangerous clients to police because they run the risk of being arrested or losing their business.
His massage parlour, called La Montrealaise, openly flouts Canadian law, detailing on its website various sexual services that are available. La Montrealaise is located in a low-income neighbourhood that was ly home to many women selling sex from the street. The police, he said, prefer that the women work indoors, in a safe environment.
It was essentially a green light to break the law and hire prostitutes. Stan Stapleton, president of the union that represents parole officers, said he was informed the suspect saw Levesque in a hotel because he was no longer permitted by the parole board to visit massage parlours. Stapleton said in a recent interview his office had received calls from correctional employees in different parts of the country saying the practice of letting offenders purchase Ladies want sex Quebec was rare, but it did occur in the past.
Blair was unavailable for an interview, and his office did not address specific questions about prostitution laws being ignored or loosely enforced, and whether the federal government plans to modify the legislation. She says they are reluctant to act because they are worried about being portrayed as encouraging the proliferation of the sex trade. World Canada Local.
