The Toronto Sun reports that NDP Leader Jack Layton was discovered naked in a Chinatown “massage parlor” with a young woman from mainland China. The police found him while they were conducting a raid.
Jack Layton was found laying naked on a bed by Toronto Police at a suspected Chinatown bawdy house in 1996, a retired Toronto police officer told the Toronto Sun.
The stunning revelation about the current leader of the New Democratic Party comes days before the federal election at a time when his popularity is soaring.
When the policeman and his partner walked into a second-floor room at the Toronto massage parlour, they saw an attractive 5-foot-10 Asian woman who was in her mid-20s and the married, then-Metro councillor, lying on his back in bed.
The Toronto Sun also reports that the “massage parlor” had been targeted in anti-prostitution raids by police. (WARNING: Sexual content!)
The suspected bawdy house at 787 Dundas St. W. where Jack Layton was found was one of 26 raided by Toronto Police in Project Cobra in the mid-1990s.
Asian crime gangs were feeding off the bawdy houses that stretched across Toronto from Chinatown East to Parkdale.
Police assigned to Project Cobra hit 26 bawdy houses and laid more than 300 charges.
“Police were cracking down on underage girls from Thailand,” a former asian crime unit cop says.
“It was unregulated and unpoliced … it was a lucrative business, the girls were pulling in $600 to $700 for a couple hours work,” he says.
The setup at 787 Dundas St. W. impressed the ex-cop.
The guy who ran the place controlled traffic with a red and green light system from the second floor where he could see down a stairway to the street.
“The setup was amazing … when the police showed up, the manager flicked on the red light switch — which told the girls to pretend it was a legitimate business — rubs only — keep it clean and the green light meant they could perform sexual services,” he says.

Police were most concerned about underage girls brought in from Thailand and Vietnam.
The other women in the bawdy houses ranged in age from the 20s to 50.

Here it is:
So why is no one else in the media covering this spectacular story?
Mainstream media reporting Layton’s denials, but no facts
So what is the mainstream media reporting today?
A letter from Layton’s lawyer also denied any wrongdoing from their client.
“The facts are that Mr. Layton had obtained a massage from a massage therapist, but had no knowledge whatsoever that the therapist’s location may have been used for illicit purposes,” Brian Iler wrote in a statement.
“He does recall being advised by the police at the time that he did nothing wrong, but that the location was questionable, and to be stayed away from. Mr. Layton gave the officer his name and address, and nothing further happened.”
The CBC would not print the details of the story – they just cited Layton’s denial, Layton’s wife’s denial, and Layton’s lawyer’s denial. That’s it. That’s their news story – listening to one side of the story. They refused to report any of the facts from the Toronto Sun articles that I cited above, or even to show a picture of the massage parlor. If this story had been about Stephen Harper, they would have been all over it.
Today I am looking at the news headlines and every single story from the mainstream press (excluding the Sun newspapers and blogs) is spinning for Jack Layton. For example, the Globe and Mail story doesn’t even mention that he was found by police NAKED on a BED – or that this “massage parlor” had been previously raided by police for suspected sex-trafficking and prostitution, or that the woman was a Chinese national.
