Ottawa’s proposed stripper bill is commendable. There are next to no
qualifications required to be an “exotic dancer” and “exotic dancers” and
prostitution have a connection that is degrading to women and opens the door for
criminals to take advantage of.
Normal immigrants to Canada have to qualify the normal way. The issuing of immigration visa’s for strippers means that any woman wishing to immigrate to Canada has a choice, wait years and spend thousands of dollars or be prepared to become a prostitute and get into Canada fast. Canada has a moral, legal and fiduciary duty to recognize that there is an unacceptable unwritten offensive degrading item in the job description of “exotic dancer” that is contrary to Canadian values that should not be an “optional” fast track way of immigrating to Canada.
It also looks and sounds like an attempt to "legalize prostitution" There cannot be a double standard. While prostitution is illegal, it cannot and will never be stamped out. Yes, there is a need for legal prostitution but under very strict conditions and it should not be a profession that gains any points in becoming an immigrant or even temporary worker to Canada. To do so would be an insult to most women especially Canadian women who were born in other countries. Allowing "strippers visas" is a very blatant way of doing by the back door what is not allowed by the front door. Immigrants, women and men need to be treated with respect. Canada needs to start by opening up substantive number of university places for foreign women to obtain equivalent professional qualifications. Obviously, determined professional women in other countries will decide to prostitute themselves via a “strippers visa” in order to get that foot on the ground in Canada when otherwise their odds of getting even a visitors visa is entirely remote. Women, especially foreign women who are susceptible to abuse need to be protected and the eradication of stripers visas is the only way that Canada can show vulnerable women the respect they deserve. www.OttawaMensCentre.com 613-797-3237
Why is there a need for prostitution? Because many men are afraid of the liability and the risk of being destroyed in family court by feminist judges and extreme feminist lawyers hell bent on destroying me. I’ve lost count of the number of divorced men who after going the meat grinder of family court end up never seeing their children again or being reduced from the role of an active involved parent into an occasional visitor. Just watch Justice Denis Power of Ottawa in action for example. Men choose prostitution because they are afraid of the liability of more children and of being ckreued over a second time. The only solution is for parliament to legislate a presumption of equal parenting after separation and that will encourage functional heterosexual relationships that are necessary for the production of children which is the only way Canada can reduce its negative population growth which unless altered stands to cause increasingly negative effects to the Canadian economy. Canada needs to fix the problem not tend to the effects. That means, encourage normal heterosexual relationships, show respect to the institution of marriage and, show respect to women by removing stripper aka prostitute from the professions eligible for temporary and permanent visas. http://www.OttawaMensCentre.com 613-797-3237
