Walk to Stop Human Trafficking Draws Hundreds

Walk to Stop Human Trafficking Draws Hundreds

Hundreds marched Saturday in downtown Winnipeg as part of the Walk to Stop Human Trafficking movement.

Conservative MP Joy Smith introduced a bill last year that would amend Canada’s Criminal Code to provide a mandatory minimum sentence of five-years for anyone convicted of trafficking minors. Young women are often bought and sold for sexual exploits on the streets. The bill is now in front of a Senate committee for review, after already having passed a second reading.
