Human trafficking bill passes Senate
Description: Bill C-268, a private members’ bill calling for mandatory minimum sentences for child traffickers, was passed by the Senate on Thursday. Liu Institute Professor Benjamin Perrin, who helped draft Bill C-268, thinks the bill is only part of the solution to address human trafficking in Canada. Also needed are more judges who understand the crime and police officers who are willing to recommend human trafficking charges, he said. “We should be charging someone with the most serious charge that their conduct warrants,” Perrin said.
