Alaska Dispatch- Strip club owners in Canada say they will take their poles to high school job fairs in search of new talent if tough new immigration laws continue, the Toronto Sun reported. The Adult Entertainment Association of Canada claims the country’s Conservative government is killing the industry by refusing to grant visas or extensions to foreign workers. “They’re … creating a labor shortage,” AEAC director Tim Lambrinos told the Sun. “The word exotic means foreign, and that’s what people want to see.” The association says about 800 foreign strippers work in Canada; the change came into effect on July 14. As a result, the association has formulated a brochure it plans to distribute to high school girls. It will also engage in lobbying efforts, help dancers with refugee claims or even find husbands so the women can stay in Canada. “We are already doing some outreach work in some areas,” Lambrinos said, according to the Sun. “We will be taking a strippers’ dance pole with us to the schools.” The brochure itself – which was leaked to the newspaper – says dancers can earn part-time money to pay for college tuition; however, you must be “visually appealing and comfortable with your naked body and are comfortable about taking all your clothes off.”
The Adult Entertainment Association of Canada can talk all they want about how opposed they are to this law and how it’s doing a disservice to all the hardworking foreigners that came into the country to make an honest living by taking their clothes off, but as a somewhat seasoned smut peddler I can see right through their ruse. Everyone knows you spent countless hours and donated millions of dollars fighting for legislation to kick the foreigners out so you’d have an excuse to recruit high school girls to strip for you. You don’t have to lie about it. Everyone knows “exotic” doesn’t mean foreign. Exotic means tits. Your sales pitch is literally “Be hot and be willing to take your clothes off for money.” You kind of lost the right to play the morally superior card the second you decided that your main source of income was going to be naked girls dancing on poles (not that’s there’s anything wrong with that). You don’t have to make excuses. If you want to walk into a high school with a stripper pole and start recruiting broken dreams to headline for you at Toronto’s House of Tit-Ehs then by all means go ahead and do it. It’s just a shame they waited this long to think of an excuse.
