Re: “Strip clubs to recruit at job fairs,” The Province, July 25.
Tim Lambrinos, the executive director for Canada’s adult entertainment association, has now gone public in order to target greater numbers of our youth at high schools and job fairs.
The adult entertainment association of Canada is upset with the recent initiatives to close our borders to human trafficking.
Lambrinos says they are losing money.
The industry is worried about a labour shortage as the federal government (which, by the way, has responded to concerned citizens) has shut off foreign sex workers into Canada thanks to MP Joy Smith’s Bill C-310 and the offences (s.279.01 to s.279.03), which, committed outside of Canada by a Canadian or permanent resident, could be prosecuted in Canada.
The AEAC would like us to believe it’s a good way for university students to pay for their tuition.
I have talked to countless victims here in Canada and abroad and heard their heart-wrenching stories of manipulation, deception, abuse, and threats.
How many have felt that their only way of escaping this horrible lifestyle is through drugs or suicide?
According to the Criminal Intelligence Service of Canada police in Vancouver regularly find underage girls working in Canadian strip clubs as young as 14 years old and selling their bodies to 20 to 40 men a night earning approximately $280,800 annually for the owner.
Prostitution, strip clubs and massage parlors all share a common thread — the owners are making big bucks through the sexual “services” of young victims.
We cannot be silent and we must make our voices heard.
We cannot let Canadian predators exploit our youth. Write to your MP, local newspapers, media, etc. and let them know that our children, no matter what age, are not to be bought and sold.
