Canada has a good law with regard to prostitution but it needs to be enforced by police, judges and prosecutors. Come and hear more about what the dynamic of prostitution is, who it affects and who the buyers are. We will discuss the differences between the abolitionist model, legalization and full decriminalization as it currently is in Germany and New Zealand. All will be presented within the social justices teachings of the Church with respect for the dignity of the human person and preferential option of the poor.
