Vulnerable women remain targets

Closure of PEERS services for sex-trade workers a sign of greater problem

Re: PEERS loses drop-in centre, social program (News, Sept.4)

I have long held that our attitude towards prostitutes reflects our attitude towards women in general.

This further cut in service by PEERS shows we have learned nothing from the Pickton affair – women remain potential targets, carefully watched lest they show signs of provocation.

So glad I was born male – and they do the pregnancy thing too.
