Supporters of the health, wellbeing and rights of sex workers reexpressed their concerns about Bill C36. They added to their arguments that the House of Commons’ Justice Committee hearings this summer sidelined the voices of those who oppose the use of criminal law in relation to sex work. Presentations were given by Anna-Aude Caouette and Robyn Maynard from Stella, a sex worker organization for women, Frank Suerich-Gulich, from ASTTEQ, Claude Poisson, from Rézo, travailleurs du sexe, Chantal Montmorency, and Viviane Namaste, with Concordia University’s Simone de Beauvoir Institute.
