Interview with Naomi Sayers from South Western Ontario Sex Workers

On September 10, 2014, witnesses appeared before Senate to argue against Bill C-36, which is under study and which, if enacted in its entirety, would criminalize prostitution. CKUT's Leila Lemghalef interviewed Naomi Sayers on September 10, 2014. Sayers submitted a brief to Senate, the introduction of which is quoted below.

 

#c36 Brief to the Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs | Kwe Today:

"My name is Naomi Sayers, founder of South Western Ontario Sex Workers (SWOSW) who is a member of the Canadian Alliance for Sex Work Law Reform. I am an Indigenous woman and former sex worker from Northern Ontario with experience in working in both Northern and Southern Ontario. Both as an individual and as a member of SWOSW and Canadian Alliance for Sex Work Law Form, I will make it clear from the outset: Bill C-36 will create more harms in the lives of sex workers, especially Indigenous sex workers or sex workers in Northern parts of Canada. As a result, I do not support Bill C-36 or the use of other criminal laws that target sex work."
