I'm so happy that the prostitution issue is being addressed in New Brunswick. I'm a resident and even just yesterday September 1st I was walking from my residence to downtown to do a little shopping. On my way a gentleman (and I use the term "gentleman" loosely) pulled up alongside me and asked "Do you want a lift?" I, knowing full well he surely wasn't just offering a ride in his vehicle, told him to "get lost". He was persistent though and circled the block and pulled up to me again. At this point I yelled loud enough to alert other pedestrians in the area " if you circle again I'm calling police". He finally left.
This situation happens often. It's very scary especially if there aren't other people nearby. I hope this man was an undercover officer but I doubt it given the repeated attempts. I'm a cancer survivor and am weakened by past surgeries so I'm not very able to defend myself should one of these prostitute seekers get physical. While I don't judge these prostitutes for what they do as I understand that times are hard, they need to understand how their "profession" affects others. While they might be just trying to earn money, women like myself are being harassed and targeted by their potential customers.
To that end many thanks to New Brunswick law enforcement for trying to make it safer for women to walk downtown!!
