TORONTO — If you work for Jillian Hollander, she says, you will be eligible for educational bursaries, RRSP matching, and discounts on plastic surgery if you need a confidence boost.

But working for Ms. Hollander would mean becoming a sex worker. She owns and runs Cupid’s Escorts, Toronto’s biggest, employing 40 prostitutes.

“I run a high-end introduction service,” says Ms. Hollander (and no, that’s not her real name). “I screen the clients and set up dates. I encourage the women to pursue their education by providing bursary programs. I encourage them to think about their futures by doing RRSP matching, and I have plastic surgery discounts for those that want to feel a bit better about themselves. I ensure their security, I take care of their marketing, and make sure they’re treated with the respect that they deserve.”

“My head’s been spinning for the past two weeks as I come to the realization of how this will affect me,” says Ms. Hollander. “I find it ridiculous that the Conservatives want to create laws for us without even consulting us and how we feel.”
