Commencing next year, a five-judge panel said unanimously, prostitutes in any part of the province can work legally in brothels that will be operated like ordinary businesses.
As of April 25, they can engage bodyguards or security staff.
The court left intact just one of three key provisions that had been challenged by three current or former prostitutes. It said that communicating for the purposes of prostitution will remain illegal.
This will, no doubt, got to the Supreme Court, so it’s far from a settled manner.
Consider this an open thread on prostitution. I’d comment more, but I have… umm… someplace to be.
