Readings on youth in the sex trade 

Do you want to review the readings I have on youth in the sex trade for a class I’ll be lecturing in November? Here they are (and yes I know the case law isn’t “good law” but there are some sections that I want to use for a discussion on youth in the sex trade, especially how the law treats and views youth in terms of their agency and their rights):

To read:

General introduction on youth in the sex trade: http://www.parl.gc.ca/content/lop/researchpublications/2011-119-e.htm#a21 (ONLY sections entitled “Child Protection” and “secure care”) AND https://kwetoday.com/2015/03/14/a-controversial-issue-youth-in-the-sex-trade/ AND http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/rp-pr/cj-jp/yj-jj/rr01_13/rr01_13.pdf (ONLY sections 1.2, 2.2, 2.10-2.13)

Case: Alberta v K.B. (Provincial court, family division level): ONLY paragraphs 23-54, 57, 65-72, 77-78, 87-88, 93-94, 104-105, 111-121 AND Alberta v K.B. (Queen’s bench level): ONLY paragraphs 3-5, 9-12, 21, 44-48, 52, 56, 58, 67, 69, 71-72, 75-76, 78-81, 101-104, 109 AND footnote 5

Review: Protection of Sexually Exploited Children Act

Can you spot the difference in how the law treats and views adult sex workers from youth in the sex trade?
