CKUT’s Leila Lemghalef interviewed Naomi Sayers on September 10, 2014. Sayers submitted a brief to Senate, the introduction of which is quoted below.


#c36 Brief to the Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs | Kwe Today:

Both as an individual and as a member of SWOSW and Canadian Alliance for Sex Work Law Form, I will make it clear from the outset: Bill C-36 will create more harms in the lives of sex workers, especially Indigenous sex workers or sex workers in Northern parts of Canada. As a result, I do not support Bill C-36 or the use of other criminal laws that target sex work.”
