The Con Hookers and the War on the Supreme Court
I suppose it's only fitting that it should be Peter MacKay, the one who pimped the Progressive Conservative party to Stephen Harper and his Reform cowboys, who should make the announcement.
And that the hooker regime that would do ANYTHING to win or steal an election, should be the one to re-criminalize prostitution.
The federal Conservative government will try to abolish the sex trade by targeting “johns” who purchase sex and anyone else who profits from or advertises the sexual services of others, all the while trying to persuade prostitutes to quit selling their bodies.
Despite the government’s claim it wants to protect vulnerable women and target only at those who profit from victimizing them, the Conservative bill takes aim at prostitutes, too, depending on where and how they practice their trade.
For only the Cons could produce a new law that is worse than the one the Supreme Court struck down.
And would make the lives of sex workers even more dangerous.
All this will have a “devastating impact on sex workers’ safety,” warns Katrina Pacey, a lawyer for Pivot Legal Society which has campaigned for reform in this area. More women will end up working in the shadows, be slapped into jail, go missing or be murdered, she told CBC News.
The new law will force prostitutes to work in isolated, unsafe areas to avoid any possible risk of coming across a youth. Clients won’t want to come to relatively safe indoor locations, knowing that the police may be parked outside, trolling for johns. So they’ll demand that prostitutes jump into their cars without having time to screen them or meet them in isolated places. That will leave sex workers with even less access to police protection.
But then of course, there is method to the madness. Because this isn't just another attempt to pleasure their rabid religious base.
It's also the latest chapter in Stephen Harper's war on the Supreme Court...
For he must surely know that this law will be challenged in court, like so many of his reactionary crime bills have been.
And there is nothing he would like more than to pit Canadians against the Supreme Court in a federal election. Claiming he's trying to keep criminals out of their homes, and prostitutes out of the playgrounds, but those liberal judges won't let him.
Because why do you think he would drag children into this story?
But then that's the kind of depraved leader he is, his vindictiveness knows no end.
And I wouldn't be surprised if hanging the sordid issue of prostitution around the neck of the hated Chief Justice is for him the next best thing to a sexual thrill.
Especially since he never answered the dominatrix's question...
So, what is sex or, more specifically, what constitutes a sex act? Aside from the can’t-print-it-here obvious, that is. That’s just one of the not so hoary questions Toronto dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford, who made history last month by leading the constitutional charge on the Supreme Court of Canada to decriminalize prostitution, wants to ask Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Thank goodness. Because ever since I heard him ask a female reporter whether she liked handcuffs, I'd rather not know eh?
But he is such a hypocrite, that he would bring the state crashing into the bedrooms of the nation again, or invade our privacy with his foul so-called cyber-bullying bill.
After claiming he was defending the privacy rights of Canadians when he gutted the census, and scrapped the long gun registry.
And how is that working out for him I wonder?
Three RCMP officers were shot and killed and two officers were injured in Moncton, N.B., as the Mounties conducted a manhunt across the city’s north end into the early morning hours of Thursday for a 24-year-old man who they tweeted a photo of wearing military camouflage and carrying two rifles.
But then he crazy, he is desperate, and he is DANGEROUS.
He has no respect for harm reduction.
Or for murdered or missing aboriginal women.
Last week, while aboriginal demonstrators were marching outside the Centre Block on Parliament Hill, New Democratic MP Niki Ashton rose in the Commons and asked the government — again — to convene a national inquiry to provide answers and justice for the families of missing and murdered aboriginal women. What she got from the country's justice minister, Peter MacKay, was a patronizing smack down.
And neither does his hapless stooge Peter MacKay.
And really, what more can I say when i'm living in a grubby red-light nation like Harperland?
Except please, please, in the name of human decency.
Do what you must to defeat them.
And arrest those Con hookers...
