TORONTO -- One popular Toronto strip club owner says his stable of exotic dancers include more than a dozen college or university students.
The well-known Toronto businessman, who did not want to be publicly identified, said two of his dancers are studying to become doctors; four are attending law school and six are taking classes to become chartered accountants.
"They just do their job and go home," the owner said. "They are very intelligent and always show up on time and don't perform extras."
Club owners have created a six-point plan of action to recruit strippers as foreign dancers are becoming scarce as their visas can't be renewed under a new federal law.
They plan on organizing the dancers; stepping up recruitment in high schools, colleges and universities; seeking Canadian husbands to marry those whose visas are expiring; filing refugee claims, lobbying the federal government and working with civil servants.
