Eastern Mayor Robert Coutoe is one of them.

“It’s a matter of time and money, because every time we stop to check out a prostitute it takes 15 seconds,” Coutue told CBC.

Coutue said statistics show red districts are not as unacceptable as they were was once thought to be.

He said allowing turning tricks with some restrictions, such as not allowing it at busy downtown intersections, would be a safe way to improve Montreal.

Montreal Mayor Denis Codere is not part of the group but did say he supported making red light districts legal on the island during the last election campaign.
