Brenda Cossman: Sex workers given lower bar when it comes to consent
On Tuesday we discussed the case of thirty-six year-old Cindy Gladue. She died in an Edmonton hotel room in June, 2011. She bled to death... her body was found in the bathtub. Charged in the case was a truck driver, from Ontario, Bradley Barton.
Last month Mr. Barton was found not guilty of first-degree murder, as well as manslaughter.
This case raised many questions and concerns, including questions around the laws of consent.
