In Canada, human trafficking is – shockingly! – on the rise.
In fact, over the last five years in Toronto alone, police have dealt with more than a thousand cases of human trafficking.
More than a quarter of which involved someone under the age of 18!
But for the last three and a half years, human traffickers have received the message that fighting their crimes is not a priority.
A Conservative government, led by Andrew Scheer, will ensure that prosecutors have the strongest laws behind them to keep human traffickers off our streets, away from survivors, and away from those that traffickers seek to harm.
Andrew’s plan builds on the previous Conservative Government’s National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking, a plan that Justin Trudeau’s government callously cancelled.
We will put survivors first and keep human traffickers off our streets!
All Canadians deserve to feel safe where they live and know that their government takes heinous crimes seriously.
