Letter to the editor,

I was thrilled to see "Cute penguins have sex trade" by Guy Bennett, (March 12) and his suggestion to make Vancouver "The Whore Capital of Canada." I have been agitating for that for three years now. Just as Bennett suggests, making Vancouver a sex tourism capital would solve economic ills as well as create safer workplaces and working conditions for people in the sex industry.

The Sex Workers Alliance of Vancouver has said for a long time that prostitution is not the problem, it's part of the solution. It is so nice to see that finally people are starting to get the message.
