Human Trafficking is a very profitable industry for those involved. But the people being trafficked are often stripped of their rights and freedoms and become 2nd class citizens to their captors. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world.
Revenue from trafficked persons is estimated to be between 5 to 9 billion US dollars per year. In Canada, the RCMP estimate that 600-800 people are trafficked into Canada annually and that an additional 1,500 to 2,200 people are trafficked through Canada into the United States.
Many of the people being trafficked are either women or children, that are then funneled into other industries such as free labour market and prostitution.
If we can get enough people to sign this we can get this topic raised during parliament. This is all about raising awareness and getting the Canadian Government to do more for this pressing issue.
We, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge how important stopping human trafficking is to the lives of those affected both directly and indirectly.
We therefore ask that the MP in our riding to bring this issue forward to the House of Commons.
This way they can review and improve existing protocol and make it harder for individuals to traffic others into our country.
The Human Trafficking: Help Raise Awareness and Bring it Before Parliament!! petition to Our local MP and related ministries was written by Andrew and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
