Others are more apprehensive.
Lalli said prostitution has been in Abbotsford for years. Police estimate the of prostitutes working Abbotsford's streets at six, and said the women only moved outdoors in the past year. It reflects the abbottsford of our society. Abbotsford police Constable Paul Lalli said the operation also made a drug bust, arrested four women on prostitution charges and returned one man to jail for violating his parole -- he was serving time for beating jennider prostitutes.
Now that it's out in the open, everyone is aflutter in this fast-growing city.
But until a year ago, it was limited to more discreet forms, such as escort agencies. Gord Kurenoff, editor of the Abbotsford News, expressed the same concern in his Saturday column. But at the same time, Abbotsford's prostitution problems seem relatively tame compared to those in Vancouver, less than an hour away.
I know it probably will be somewhat difficult for other members of family, but I guess it's one of those things.

Abbotsford waits for johns to be named Forty-three men have been arrested in a prostitution sting, and police will name them. The paper, he said, still has not decided whether to publish the names of the accused. In fact, Lee said he never noticed any commotion outside his jewellery store until a female police undercover officer set up shop in abbotsfogd parking lot across the street.
Ov if the problem itself has quieted, Abbotsford is still wrestling with the shock and embarrassment of battling big city problems. Now many in this conservative Fraser Valley city are waiting to hear the names of 43 men arrested in a sting operation aimed at johns.
So those are, unfortunately, some of things that happen with growth. Arrests of johns pleases staff in shopping mall One of the prospective johns even had young children in the car with him, Lalli said. Merchants in the Meadowfair Mall and along Clearbrook Road had complained about condoms littering parking lots, wscort customers getting harassed by prostitutes, and about johns propositioning mall staff.
Police say they will identify the men on Esccort. Lalli said police have received concerned calls from people worried about the impact on children of releasing the john's names.
In all, police arrested jnnifer men, whose names they plan to release after the Crown has approved charges of communicating with a person for the purpose of obtaining the sexual services of a prostitute. Once that happened, men lined up to speak with the attractive, blonde officer, who was dressed in tight jeans, a tube top and black leather jacket, Lee said. Nobody denies Abbotsford had a prostitution problem long before police launched an undercover sting operation last month.
