Canadian government wants your opinion on a new prostitution law

The government of Canada has launched an online survey seeking the public's input on how the government should frame a new law on prostitution in response to the Supreme Court's decision declaring the main parts of the existing law unconstitutional, reports LifeSiteNews.

The survey questionnaire gives some background on the Supreme Court's December 20 decision and offers examples of existing international approaches to prostitution law, including the "Nordic Model" that is in place in Sweden, Norway and Iceland. The laws in these countries have almost completely eliminated prostitution by criminalizing the buying of sex and the activities of pimps, and decriminalizing prostitutes themselves.

The survey consists of only four questions that concern the criminality of prostitution activities, as well as providing a space for comments.

“Our Government is concerned about the significant harms that flow from prostitution to communities, those engaged in prostitution and other vulnerable persons,” said Justice Minister Peter MacKay in a press release announcing the survey yesterday.

“Doing nothing is not an option - we are therefore asking Canadians right across the country, to provide their input, through an on-line consultation, to ensure a legislative response to prostitution that reflects our country’s values,” he continued. “We will be taking action to maintain the safety of our streets and communities, for the benefit of all Canadians.”

The online consultation is open for one month, from February 17 to March 17, 2014.
