PUBLIC SAFETY

Police urge residents to use vulnerable persons registry RICK VANDERLINDE rvanderlinde@simcoe.com South Simcoe police are urging residents to register online if they have a vulnerable person in their

family after an elderly man went missing on Feb. 13. Officers found the Sandy Cove man two hours later, but say the situation was a prime example of

how the vulnerable person registry can help police. The man’s wife reported him missing at about 10 p.m. after he didn’t return from a shopping trip. Officers spotted his car just af-

ter midnight. He had become confused during the trip and got lost. The scare comes after Barrie police spent a week in an unsuccessful search for 72-year-old Mandy Thompson before calling off the search on Feb. 12. South Simcoe police unveiled a digital registry on their website to reporters last week during the service’s annual media

roundtable. You can download a photo, description and favourite places the person may attend, and any other helpful information to assist police if someone is lost or in a crisis situation. South Simcoe police is partnering with CHATS (Community and Home Assistance to Seniors) to add more vulnerable seniors to the registry.

The registry is not only used for missing persons, but also for people with mental health challenges who may be confronted by police. You can find more information at www.southsimcoepolice.on.ca. You can also call 1-888812-4287 to leave a name and phone number. An assistant will call back within 48 hours.

Guidelines should protect sex workers, Onyx Ronin says

BILL C-36 Bill C-36 was ushered in under the Tories in 2014 and considers the selling of sex as legal, but makes the buying of "sexual services" a criminal offence. It also makes it illegal for anyone to communicate for the purpose of prostitution and bans advertising the sexual services of others.

JEREMY GRIMALDI jgrimaldi@yrmg.com Onyx Ronin lives in the shadows when she’s at work. She and countless women like her occupy the grey areas of law, somewhere between legitimacy and criminality. Society at large might prefer to forget her profession exists, rather than admit it’s not only real, but a flourishing industry. She’s a "body rubber," as defined by the laws that govern her career. She has never been arrested and says she sees police "maybe once a year." People might think Ronin, her working name, and her peers destroy families and corrupt men. But she sees her job in a different light and believes you should, too. "I feel that I relieve a lot of road rage," she said during a recent interview. "People are stressed in this world; when they’re on the table, they are happy and relaxed. When I’m touching someone, I feel relaxed and comfortable and I’m sharing an experience with someone. "It’s about selling intimacy, the human touch, to feel connected to someone else." The 28-year-old employee of the female-owned MUSE Spa, which has locations in Vaughan and Toronto, is open about her work. She says "there’s nothing wrong with having sex for money," although that’s not what she does.

Mike Barrett/Metroland

Onyx Ronin is a body rubber (masseuse). She is standing up for the profession and saying the laws should be changed to better protect the women involved. "People do all sorts of things for money," she says. "I don’t understand why we are so stuck on this idea that sexuality can’t be commodified in this one particular way when people accept it being commodified in so many other ways." At the spa, she gives "full body erotic massages" largely to men aged 40 to 50. She says MUSE targets men at a higher price point, suggesting her clients are rarely, if ever, intoxicated, and very "respectful." But she says she can’t speak

generally about her profession: "As for other girls, I don’t know." Ronin studied classical music at the University of Toronto, before studying sex work as part of her master’s degree at York University. After graduation, she worked retail jobs. She entered the industry at 25 and immediately saw an extraordinary jump in pay, she says, explaining she now makes between $80 and $300 an hour. According to MUSE’s website, 30 minutes with an attendant costs $120, $40

IS FOOT PAIN GETTING YOU DOWN? STOP PUTTING IT OFF AND GIVE US A CALL. YOU’VE SEEN OUR SIGN, COME ON IN!

for a "door fee" and $80 of which goes to the attendant. Ronin decided to share her story and opinions after MUSE’s Vaughan location was robbed on Dec. 28, 2016. At the time, York Regional Police Det. Sgt. Dave Noseworthy said many massage parlours don’t report robberies because neither employers nor employees want publicity. That, says Ronin, shows the law, in its current form, doesn’t properly protect workers in the sex trade. "I would like to see law-

makers looking through the lens that there’s nothing morally wrong with providing sexual services for money," she said. "I would like them to ask, ’How can we help people work without shame and afford them the same rights that everyone else is protected by law?’" The current law, a complicated set of guidelines, criminalizes the buying of sex and the advertising of "sexual services", York police Det. Sgt. Thai Truong explained. Ian McLeod, a spokes-

person for the Department of Justice, says any person who purchases sexual services, including manual masturbation, in any place, including a massage parlour, commits an offence. McLeod added that the Minister of Justice has committed to monitoring the impacts of Bill C-36, which regulates prostitution. Ronin, like others in her trade, needs a municipality-issued licence that has her name, photograph and home address to work as a "body rubber." She must also pass a communicable disease test.She suggests the federal government needs to draft new measures to ensure women and girls are not being forced into the profession and exploited. She envisions a society where all sex workers are in constant contact with the authorities, which would improve the chances of helping those that don’t want to be there. "It should be legal and protected, just like every other job," she said. Ronin says her job doesn’t suit everyone and businesses see a high turnover, but she insists that her experience has been positive. "As much as this job is not for everyone, it is for me," she said. "I’m a normal person, I am a happy person. I am choosing to do this."

Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Quebec. But the expansive growth comes as no surprise to town officials. The statistics steadily follow the town’s Official Plan, which estimates that the municipality will accommodate 50,500 residents by 2031. "The past several years have presented a busy but

exciting time for our town," said Mayor Rob Keffer."Our neighbourhoods are growing, we have new and expanding businesses, new parks and recreation and our schools are bustling." While intensifying services into new neighbourhoods, the town has also invested in maintaining and rehabilitating older, established neighbourhoods including parks, roads and other infrastructure.Ryan

Windle, manager of community planning, says BWG has become an appealing spot to not only new residents, but businesses and developers as well. "First and foremost, it’s an attractive community and more affordable than most of our neighbours to the south. The location is ideal. It combines wide, open rural spaces with a full range of urban ameni-

ties and offers easy access to Hwy. 400 for both residents and industry."A second major contributor to the growth, he adds, is the preparations that the town has made in order for it to happen."We continue to build the infrastructure necessary for both residential and business development and make other forward-looking decisions intended to make the community move-in

ready."Windle and other senior staff expect the growth to continue within BWG at a strong rate, as the town proceeds to work on servicing the industrial area near Hwy. 400, which is expected to bring more jobs to the community.Plans are also in the works with Simcoe County to provide a wider range of housing, including affordable and seniors’ housing, which will enhance the

community’s appeal. The town’s Official Plan is in the midst of anupdate and review, to help BWG attain the goal of becoming a complete community.

ABOUT US

Law should protect sex workers While it may be a touchy subject, it’s high time the federal government revisited its laws governing the sale and purchase of sexual services. Bill C-36, or the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act, was enacted in December 2014, after the Supreme Court had found a year earlier that sections of the previous laws governing prostitution were unconstitutional. It was touted by the federal government as targeting purchasers of sexual services, or johns, while protecting those engaged in sex work. Others, however, were critical of the new law and argued it not only made sex workers more vulnerable to becoming victims of crime, but contained many of the same issues that led to its predecessor being repealed. Two years later, the profession remains a risky business for many of those in it. That’s why people such as Onyx Ronin, who works as a "body rubber" at the femaleThe profession run MUSE Spa, are speaking up about the law’s shortcomremains a risky ings. For example, the MUSE location in Vaughan was business for robbed late last year and, at many of those the time, York Regional Police Det.-Sgt. Dave Noseworthy in it. noted many similar establishments don’t report crimes for fear of repercussions. Ronin, who has a licence for what she does and must pass a communicable disease test, says that just goes to show how inadequate the laws are when it comes to protecting those providing sexual services. Rather than "shame" people, she’d prefer to see them extended the same rights workers in any other industry enjoy, including protection under the law. Prostitution is colloquially referred to as "the world’s oldest profession", which suggests, legal or not, it will continue to happen. However, by making it and other sexual services unlawful, or shunting them into a legal grey area, it drives this activity underground, thus inviting an element of criminality that can lead to human trafficking, assaults and murders against sex workers and a host of other ills. Instead of the status quo, Ronin would like to see the laws facilitate constant contact between those in the profession and the authorities. It would not only improve safety, but also ensure no one is forced into it. We agree. While regulations would be necessary - no one wants solicitation near a school for example - the law shouldn’t endanger sex workers or foster a breeding ground for dangerous criminality.

• LETTERS TO THE EDITOR • No secrecy around transport by rail Re: Too close for comfort, Jan. 26. The article ’Culture of secrecy’ surrounds transportation of hazardous materials perpetuates a number of myths about Canada’s railway industry, chiefly that we are not transparent about the dangerous goods we move and that we are self-regulated. Canada’s railways have long shared information with municipalities about the goods travelling through their communities. Today, through Protective Direction 36, Canada’s railways provide information to hundreds of municipalities to help them properly train for, and respond to, a potential inci-

dent. This information contains detailed information about the commodities that transit through each municipality. Each jurisdiction’s designated emergency planning official has the discretion to make this information public. In addition, the AskRail mobile app gives first responders immediate access to accurate, timely information about railcar contents so they can make informed decisions in the event of a rail emergency. More than 2000 first responders across Canada have signed up for AskRail. Last summer, The Railway Association of Canada collaborated with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs to produce a video to promote the app. These transparency measures support the vari-

ous levels of training and community outreach undertaken by Canada’s railways each year. In 2015, for example, the industry held more than 50 safety-related public meetings with mayors, city managers and First Nations chiefs from coast to coast. We also trained more than 6,000 first responders, railway employees and industrial plant workers on dangerous goods handling and emergency response. The suggestion that Canada’s railways are "self-regulated" is designed to imply that there is no oversight of railways. In fact, railways in Canada must comply with the Railway Safety Act, dozens of regulations and hundreds of safety rules as part of Canada’s regulatory system. These rules have the

full force of regulation and government inspectors have numerous enforcement tools at their disposal. There is no secrecy surrounding the transportation of dangerous goods by rail in Canada. While we have always shared information with interested communities, we have never been more open, provided more up-to-the-minute information or trained more personnel. We believe rail safety is enhanced by working closely with communities. Michael Bourque President and CEO,Railway Association of Canada

Proud Moment

Vimy Ridge is a story of bravery and sacrifice, The Vimy Foundation reports.The Germans had successfully resisted earlier Allied attacks and heavily defended the ridge when Canadians took it. The Germans retreated.Canadian assault troops went over the ridge in early morning Easter Monday, 1917. They attacked in to enemy lines amid snow, sleet and driving wind. Some 3,593 Canadian soldiers were killed during the battle.France granted Canada 107 hectares of land at Vimy to build and maintain a memorial in appreciation of Canada’s war efforts.

$10K up for grabs at Ice Fishing Derby BREA BARTHOLET BBARTHOLET@YRMG.COM Who says you shouldn’t fish in the middle of winter? You and your entire family won’t want to miss out on the second annual Lake Simcoe Championship Ice Fishing Derby coming up on Feb. 19 in Georgina. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., participants will try to lure in the heaviest combined weight of up to 12 perch, to capture the first-place prize of $10,000. Official weigh-in of each team’s perch will take place between 1 and 2 p.m. In the odd case of a tie, the first-prize winnings will be split between both winning teams. As it will be held on Family Day weekend, Canadian residents will not need a fishing license to take part. The first 200 teams to register will receive a loot bag with minnows, lottery tickets and more. Cost is $250 for a team of two fishers. All teams must sign in on the morning of the event. The derby is held in support of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program, which assists the families of financially-strained local youth to participate in organized sports. For more information, a full list of rules, or to register, visit www.icefishinglakesimcoe.com

Traffic Ticket Advocates By: Chris Buckle When can I talk on my cell phone? Since early 2010, the law was passed banning the use or handling a handheld device. As of September 1, 2015 this law was amended, with an increase in the fine and demerit points being added. The fine was increased to $490 and 3 demerit points. Another major change is the impact to a Novice Driver (G1,G2,M1,M2). If caught and charged with Handheld device, the Novice driver will automatically have a 30 day suspension for the first conviction, 90 day for second conviction and possible licence cancellation for third conviction. It is important to know your options…I always recommend that you take advantage of my FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. When you want Professional Representation on traffic matters, call...
