I think you need to pay closer attention to what's going on.
Prostitution in Canada is NOT illegal. It is already legal, it has been legal for years.
Solicitation is illegal. Pimping, not
prostitution, pimping - is living off the avails of prostitution, and pimping is illegal. And to date, brothels have been illegal.
The prostitutes want brothels to be made legal so they can get off the streets, not have to do any solicitation, and get rid of the pimps.
The prostitutes want to work employed in a safe, legal place (a brothel) where they are legally employed by the brothel (the legal employer who gives them a regular pay cheque after deduction of taxes and CPP contributions) without soliciting and without pimps and where they can legally hire legally employed body guards to protect the legal brothel and the (already) legal sex workers.
It should have been a done deal decades ago and they should have been unionized by now.
