Police try again against oldest profession

In advance of Grand Prix weekend we see two sides of the coin on this story: police have devised a new plan nominally to counter sexual exploitation by encouraging taxi drivers and hotel workers to speak up if they think they’ve seen signs of it.

CBC makes the process sound benevolent, but Metro speaks to a sex worker spokeswoman who’s livid, saying the plan will turn everyone into a snitch and make relatively safe places for sex work – notably hotels – off limits.
