Are prostitutes respected in Montreal?

Prostitutes are protected under Bill C-36, Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act – “a balanced policy that criminalizes the purchase of sex but gives prostitutes ‘immunity’ from prosecution so they can ply their trade more safely.” [Link] This means prostitutes are respected as citizens under Bill C12, Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, but I can’t tell you whether they are respected by the people of Montreal in the more conventional sense.
