Wall Government Reverses Decision For Stripping in Bars; Man Tears Flow

After making stripping in bars legal last year, Premier Brad Wall says he wants to reverse course.

Wall announced Wednesday the Saskatchewan Party government will amend the liquor laws, again, to make stripping illegal in bars.

It was only in January 2014, that Saskatchewan ended a decades-long ban on nude dancing in places that serve alcohol.

“I believe that the government of Saskatchewan made a mistake last year when we allowed licensed strip clubs in the province,” Wall said. “I made a mistake and so I’m announcing today that we are reversing that decision.”

Under the previously amended rules, total nudity was still outlawed, but dancers could strip down to pasties.

Now, that change is going to be reversed. The concern is over the exploitation of women in such establishments.

“Let’s make sure we’re not allowing for any opportunity for organized crime to increase its footprint or for there for ever to be an increase in human trafficking that we know is happening,” Wall said.

Wall said that any possible links to human trafficking and organized crime are too serious to turn a blind eye.

The change can be made in a matter of weeks.

Regina City Council recently rejected a proposal for a strip bar in an industrial area after establishing zoning rules. A Christian group applauded the move, although others thought the city had no right to reject a legal business that followed all the rules.

The many johns and pimps in the comment section are already getting their nut-sacks in a twist over this decision. As if, not being allowed to drink and oogle at impoverished, desperate women forced to take their clothes off for perverted DRUNK strangers is a human rights violation! The horror! The poor deflated penises! *cries*

  1. Wait- an elected official said that stuff? Huh?
    I’m betting there are still strip clubs, but ones without booze. Hoping I’m wrong, it would be great if there was one place without them.
    (former stripper that would love to see all clubs banned and all johns burnt up)

    • There are still “massage parlors” in the cities but Brad Wall recently stated that he was concerned about those places too. There are strip clubs that do not serve booze, yes. And I also hope all strip clubs be banned too but that seems like an impossibility.
