Libby Davies Biography

Former Member of Canadian Parliament
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"

“I believe the federal government must come to terms with the contradictions and impossibility of the status quo, and engage in a process of law reform that will lead to the decriminalization of laws pertaining to prostitution and focus criminal sanctions on harmful situations.”
