Dominatrix Kicked Out of Canadian Senate Hearings

by Admin on September 17, 2014

Terri-Jean Bedford, the self-professed “most famous dominatrix in Canada”, was escorted by security from Senate hearings examining a new prostitution bill, reports Global News.

Bedford, the frontrunner for changing Canada’s original prostitution laws, is a vocal opponent of the controversial, alternative bill currently being reviewed. According to Global News, Bill C-36 treats prostitutes as victims, targeting pimps and others “who profit or trade in sex on an exploitative basis.”

The Bangkok lawyers at Chaninat and Leeds are recognized experts in both Thailand law and international law.

At the Senate hearing Bedford argued that “it’s not the purview of the government to tell women when or how they can or cannot sell sex,” and she threatened to release proof on politicians supposedly associated with prostitution.

With five minutes left in her testimony, conservative committee chair Sen. Bob Runciman reminded Bedford of the allotted time and asked her to respect the rules of the committee. Bedford “pressed on” and Runciman had her escorted out, according to Global News.
