CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 30, 2013) - The West Coast Cooperative of Sex Industry Professionals (WCCSIP) and the Canadian Adult Entertainment Council (CAEC) understand that delegates to the Conservative Convention in Calgary will consider a resolution that sex work in Canada should be criminalized.
The CAEC notes there are several hundred active sex workers in Calgary who would like to be consulted before convention delegates vote on this resolution.
Many sex workers offer reduced rates for social time. All would be more than willing spend time with Conservative delegates explaining what sex workers think of any attempt to make it a criminal offense to pay sex workers for their services.
The CAEC further notes that the opinions of pseudo academic sex work commentators, such as disgraced Conservative consultant Benjamin Perrin, are not an appropriate substitute for meaningful consultation with currently active sex workers.
