What’s Current: The Liberal Party of Canada wants to repeal Canada’s prostitution laws

What’s Current is Feminist Current’s daily news roundup.

  • Canada’s Liberal Party wants to put the decriminalization of pimps, johns, and brothel owners on their 2019 platform, thereby repealing Canada’s current laws, which decriminalize prostituted people, but criminalize those who buy sex or profit from the exploitation of others in the trade.
  • Pilot Jane Clegg has resigned from Air Canada, after three decades of being a military or commercial pilot, alleging that the airline forced her and other female pilots to work around disrespectful male colleagues by accepting lower paid, or less desirable routs.
  • Singer Jade Naraine has filed for a judicial review of Toronto police and Crown attorneys, following what she says was an inadequate response to her claim and evidence of a violent sexual assault.
  • Footage posted by journalist, Julie Bindel, over the weekend shows gender identity activists blocking a feminist meeting about the Gender Recognition Act and hassling attendees.
