Vancouver sex workers to challenge country's prostituion laws

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that Vanouver’s Downtown East Side non-profit group, Sex Workers United Against Violence Society, has standing in their challenge to the country’s anti-prostitution laws.

"Frankly, I don't care how that happens. I don't care if (the Ontario case) does it; I don't care if we do it; I don't care if (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper all of a sudden wakes up one day and says, 'Oh my gosh, what was I thinking?' "All I care is there's safety for sex workers, and whatever measure or means is required to get there, we are on board and ready for the fight." Katrina Pacey said, one of the lawyers involved in the case.
