Summary

Over the last few years, the Canadian federal government has had two subcommittees to look at soliciting laws as well as at the heath and safety of sex workers and that of the general public. Numerous witnesses appeared before these committees. Parallel to these discussion a study was undertaken by the RCMP to see what would be the impact of legalization/decriminalization laws on the police. Many experts were met and interviewed in that regard (LeBeuf, 2006). Following on this study, it was thought that it would be beneficial to the police community and to the general public to let two experts talk about their points of view on prostitution.
