The Globe and Mail has quoted MLI Senior Fellow Benjamin Perrin as part of its coverage of newly-tabled legislation that would change Canada’s approach to prostitution. Many of the recommendations in Perrin’s MLI study, which said that exiting prostitution is the only way for women to truly protect themselves from the sex trade, are reflected in the proposed law. This includes making pimps, johns and traffickers mostly responsible for the harms of prostitution and an announcement of new money aimed at helping women leave prostitution.
