Canada’s Sex Work Shame
On November 6, Bill C-36 received Royal Assent, thereby making it law. We are profoundly disappointed, as this law will largely replicate the constitutional violations overturned by the Supreme Court in 2012, and will perpetuate harm against the health and human rights of sex workers in Canada. Learn more about the dangers of this law by reading this Q&A (includes Oct. 2014 update).

An Injection of Reason
The Supreme Court found that supervised injection sites save lives — yet the federal government is trying to make them harder to establish. Submitted to the parliamentary committee studying Bill C-2, this joint Q&A exhorts the government to hear reason and respect its highest court.
