This episode of Democracy Watch features the second part of our series on how America's passing of SESTA/FOSTA has affected sex workers in Canada—"Warning: Backpage Not Found." The piece includes an interview with local sex worker and activist Carmen, who tells us her story and the real world impact the bills have had on her. We then hear a short piece on the affects a fire at Topanga Cafe has had on the Kits community. For the final section of our show, we have a live interview with OneCity council candidates Brandon Yan and Christine Boyle. Brandon joins us live in studio and Christine joins us by phone. Both chat about their experiences with online harassment.
