Thank you.
How much time do I have left, Mr. Chair?

Really quickly, many of our witnesses so far have been describing, number one, that PCEPA is not enforced or in place equally across the country and in various provinces it's being applied differently.
I'll ask the Peers Victoria Resources Society, but, if there's time, someone else can jump in.
Could you give some feedback on the relationship between yourselves, those that you're serving and local law authorities, the police? Do you have any recommendations on how those relationships could be improved?

Thank you for that suggestion.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Not really. I thought I had five minutes, Mr. Chair.

All right. Well, I'll try to ask my questions quickly.
Thank you to all the witnesses. I do have some quick questions.
Ms. Jay, you summed up very nicely the response of Bill C-36 to the Bedford decision by saying that the “exploiters are criminalized”. We do believe that this is exploitative. We heard from Ms. Stevenson about predation, about the exploiting and the exploiters. You summed it up by saying that the exploiters are criminalized and the exploited are not criminalized. I think that should be a goal that we all share.
Could you expand on that? You summed it up nicely, but could you expand on that a bit and about how PCEPA works?

Thank you, Ms. Jay.
Do I have any time left, Mr. Chair?

Oh. I thought I had only two and a half minutes.

I'll end it at two and a half. I'm trying to get along with everybody.
Ms. Stevenson, we do hear some people speak...and it's like we're pretending that this is not exploitative. You set out very clearly in your remarks, from a personal perspective, how some people who are being exploited don't even realize it until later.
Could you expand on that quickly? You mentioned the exploitative nature. Is it fair to say that this isn't exploitative in most cases?

I was going to say that I hope everyone gets some rest over the next two weeks. I look forward to seeing them.
I think you're doing a good job, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to all of our witnesses for appearing on what is a really important study of the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act.
I was pleased to be part of a government that brought in that legislation, which criminalizes those who fuel and perpetuate the demand for prostitution by purchasing sexual services; protects those who sell their own sexual services; deals with the most vulnerable in our society; and makes sure the law is responsive to court decisions, but that we're doing our best to protect those who are vulnerable.
I want to ask a question of Mr. Paul Brandt. Thank you for appearing today. This is something you don't have to do in your time, but you spoke with great passion about what you saw in other countries. We heard from previous witnesses that the complete decriminalization of prostitution in Canada could lead us to becoming the brothel of the United States. It was really horrific to hear the description you gave about a country where this has been completely decriminalized.
Could you speak a bit more to that, as well as about #NotInMyCity, which is combatting human trafficking? I'm interested in hearing a bit more about that. There's a perception about human trafficking as being a big-city issue, but I'm from New Brunswick and, in some of our smaller Atlantic Canada communities, human trafficking is happening now. The corridors where people are trafficked are right across Canada.
If you could speak to that, I'd appreciate it.

I see that I only have 30 seconds left, but I do have one quick follow-up question.
You mentioned that PCEPA is effective when enforced, and you mentioned the Alberta experience. I know you're an Albertan, but we have heard of other provinces where it's not being as effectively enforced.
Can you speak quickly to that?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to all of our witnesses. It's great to hear from you and to hear about the work you're doing, both the YWCA Halifax and the Joy Smith Foundation. I appreciate your input into this very important study we're doing.
My question is for Joy Smith. You mentioned two private member’s bills that you were able to pass as a member of Parliament.
It's good to see you again. I served at the same time as you. I also appreciated.... I guess you were far less partisan than I was, so you were able to get strong support across the aisle for your private member's bills.
Can you speak a bit to the tie-in with what you're doing now and Bill C-36? What do your private member's bills do and what is their tie-in to Bill C-36?

Thank you for your testimony.
I have only a few seconds left.
Ms. Gagnon, you mentioned the importance of education. You're doing work in grade 7 and grade 8. I'm sorry it's not a ton of time, but can you give us a couple of highlights of what that work is like?

I'm fine to split.
