“We’re going to have to hire an 18-year-old to work in a club and we’re going to take the steps to make sure they don’t drink.”


Tim Lambrinos, executive director of the Adult Entertainment Association of Canada, on where clubs will find exotic dancers now that Ottawa has stopped issuing work permits to foreign strippers. The federal government instituted the change on July 14 with the noble intent of protecting foreign workers from exploitation. However, the new rule will result in a shortage of dancers, a gap Lambrinos is now looking to fill by recruiting in Toronto high schools and universities (at least he’s threatening to do so as part of a media campaign to repeal the law). “We will be taking a strippers’ dance pole with us to the schools,” Lambrinos told the Toronto Sun last week. First stripper poles at city hall, now stripper poles at city schools. [Toronto Star]
