Live discussion: What will legalized brothels be like in Ontario?

Valerie Scott, legal co-ordinator of Sex Professionals of Canada and one of the respondents in the court case, will be online at 1 p.m. ET to take your questions. Gerald Owen, a member of the Globe's editorial board, will begin the chat at 12:30 p.m. with the merits of the court ruling.

  • Hi, and welcome to today’s discussion: What will Ontario’s legalized brothels be like? This comes in the wake of yesterday’s decision by the Ontario Court of Appeal that will allow prostitutes to hire bodyguards and operate brothels in the province. The court upheld the ban on street solicitation. The case may still be appealed to the Supreme Court.

    At 12:30 p.m. ET, Gerald Owen, a member of the editorial board, answered your questions on the ruling and why it was a good thing. Read The Globe’s editorial: www.theglobeandmail.com

    Starting at 1 p.m. ET, Valerie Scott, legal co-ordinator of Sex Professionals of Canada and one of the respondents in the court case, took your questions on what effect these changes will have for sex workers and their clients.

    I’m the Globe’s community editor in the news section, and I moderated the discussion.
