Petition - Eliminate Human TraffickingThe Canadian Government is working in conjunction with the United Nations to eliminate Human Trafficking. However there are many victims still being smuggled over the border into Canada and held against their will. It is still a growing problem here. Human Trafficking has been dubbed "Modern Day Slavery" by the United Nations; it is a fast growing industry world-wide. Former U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, stated that Human Trafficking mainly affects women and girls. Most of these trafficked victims are under 18 years of age, and are typically poor, and vulnerable to exploitation. The traffickers lure their victims with false promises of work to help their families. Most often, the victims are removed from their countries and placed in strange new surroundings where they have no knowledge of how to escape their situation with the pimps or organized crime organizations. The victims are beaten and brutalized to prevent them from leaving.
Former Secretary of State Clinton spoke about a young child at a rescue center who had been sold to a brothel and maimed by her captor because she would fight back to prevent the inevitable sexual assaults. The brothel owner stabbed her in the eye to stop her from fighting back. This little girl and so many other children experience severe abuse and they need our help today to get out of their horrible situation.
Human Trafficking needs to be stopped now as it is poisoning our Country, Global Society, and the many victims fallen to this crime. When we allow sex ads to recruit customers and perpetuate the need for sex slaves, we are allowing the criminals to have access to these defenseless women and children. Massage Parlors are typically run by organized criminals. Our government needs to ban the advertisements that make the laws that allows the operations of such businesses successful, as they pose a threat to innocent victims of trafficking.
