Abstract: CORPRL was formed by a group of people that included downtownToronto residents and sex-trade workers. CORPRL believes that discriminalization is only stance that respects the inalienable right of persons over their own bodies," and that "affirms the dignity and value of the men and women who work in the sex trade." It is also challenging the restrictive bail conditions imposed on those charged with the purpose of communicating for prostitution. These bail conditions prohibit those charged from being out at night and from entering large parts of Toronto. CORPRL condemns this as an unjustifiable attack on basic feedom, as well as a deliberate attempt to prevent people from earning a living. It notes the strangeness of a law that makes it illegal to communicate for the purpose of carrying on an activeity which is in itself legal.
This organization no longer exists.
