Only dead sex workers get our support

From Jody Paterson's column:

"So we’ve got an inquiry into a B.C. mass murder headed up by a man tainted by his political connections, presiding over a process that shuts out almost everyone on the side of the victims.
"Yup, that sounds like a solid way to get at the truth about the Robert Pickton case.
"Only sex workers could draw straws this short. Then again, only sex workers would be left to go missing and murdered on our streets for so long in the first place. It’s baffling and heartbreaking, this misery we sustain in the name of 'morality.'"

It's worth reading the rest here.

Jody always seems to write the right things for the discussion at hand. Those women were considered throwaways to many people.
The government has no problem spending 5 millions of our dollars for a one sided argument about the HST, or any other issue that they like.Wally asked for those associations to be involved,but Ms,Family First has written the women off. Shame on the BC Government. But they simply don't care.
