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.
