Thoughts: The event does use the word sexual exploitation, which has often been used in anti-sex work advocacy. Ryan Jesperson is on the panel and his credibility as someone who can speak on this panel may need to be questioned. And the Edmonton EPS will also have an advocate on the panel and they have always come out with victim blaming “tips” after women have been assaulted in the Whyte Ave area.
