Does Canada want to "decriminalize" the buying of sex?

Vancouver Collective Against Sexual Exploitation

The Vancouver Collective Against Sexual Exploitation is a diverse and experienced group of individuals and organizations that have worked to end the sexual exploitation of men, women, and children for many years. We are lawyers, judges, social workers, professionals, teachers, front-line activists and advocates for an end to sexual exploitation in Canada. Based on the data that 92% of individuals in prostitution are not there by choice1, we believe that prostitution is a result of systemic inequality perpetuated by poverty, gender inequality, racial discrimination, violence, patriarchy, and a history of colonization. While acknowledging that some individuals in prostitution may operate out of their own free will and with full autonomy, we recognize that these individuals are the privileged minority and that most people in prostitution do not have the luxury or ability to walk away.
