Steven Maynard publishes article in The Conversation

Steven Maynard recently co-authored "Sex workers are left out in the cold by Ottawa’s unjust conviction amendments" in The Conversation. 

The article was written in response to the federal government's recent announcement of its intention to amend the Expungement of Historically Unjust Convictions Act to expand the list of offences Canadians can apply to have struck from their criminal records. The list now includes abortion-related offences and indecent acts in a bawdy house, but excludes sex workers from expungement.
