In collaboration with the City of Montreal police service, the council voted for a bylaw aiming to stop once and for all illicit activities in bawdyhouse that pretend to be massage therapy center.
After police intervention, four people were arrested in a massage parlour that was a front for prostitution. It happened on may 15. The council decided to take action. In order to avoid the opening of that type of establishment, it is now mandatory to be part of a professional association to work in a massage parlour.
