Saskatoon Strippers Protest Law With Charity Car Wash

Strippers who are peeved about Saskatoon’s recent law banning peeling in bars held a charity car wash Aug. 16 to benefit breast cancer — and protest the new law — CTV is reporting.

Dancers from the Pink Champagne Girls company say a court reversal of a law that allowed them to strip down to their underwear in March is hurting their business. The company said it raised $600 for charity from the car wash.

“It’s kind of a boobs-for-boobs thing. We thought it would fit in nicely,” Emily Kempin, owner of the Pink Champagne Girls, told CBC.

Bad weather pushed the car wash from Aug. 15 to Aug. 16.

“Do your share, Save a pair! We are doing this as a protest! We should be able to work in a safe environment!” the group wrote on its Facebook page.

Strippers are allowed to work private parties in Saskatoon, according to reports, but not in public places such as bars.

    Folks, if you want to pin our posting of this on anyone, pin it on me. I gave it the go ahead. As for the reasoning, it's this: sometimes we want to write about fun things that aren't long analytical pieces. We will still have long form pieces and more in-depth looks at the industry just as always. But, other times we just want to have fun and enjoy the end of the day. There is no vast clickbait conspiracy here. BUT, if you truly take offence to this kind of content, it's in your power to do something about it ... by doing nothing. Don't click it. Don't comment on it. The more you comment, the more other people will click. That's your vote. Also, if you want more in-depth news items, click on those and share them with friends who might find them interesting. Like our Facebook page ( and follow or Twitter account ( Share what we post. For instance, Ronnie's stories lately have all been very unique and interesting looks at the automotive industry, yet the people who are complaining here don't comment on them or pass them on. You should check out his piece today on design patents. He went though the patent database and pulled all those images. They aren't grabbed from someone else's website and reblogged here. This is original content to TTAC. Support it and we will have more of it.

      Truly amazing the amount of whining when, to your point Mark, a more effective way of showing distaste would be to give it none of one's time.

    Hmmm...I don't see any suds or water and nothing appears to even be wet. Kind of sad. Were they just pretending to wash cars for the photo?
