It's not cool, not cool at all. I have information that the Human Trafficking Bill has been stalled in the Senate. Despite Herculean efforts by MP Joy Smith and a horde of women activists doing their best to spread the awareness of this plague raging in Canada, our elected lawgivers keep on disappointing us. How long will the citizens of Canada have to wait for Bill C-268 to become law ?
Naomi Baker of Canada Fights Human Trafficking cannot understand it either. "How is it possible that our Canadian Senate still holds back the passing of such a strongly supported Bill as Bill C-268; the institution of a five year minimum sentence for those trafficking children?" she asks as do many of us.
Baker and others like her know that children are the future of Canada. The prompt passing of Bill C-268 is imperative to the future growth and stability of our nation.
I believe the present halt in Senate for Bill C-268 is primarily due to independent Senator Anne Cools who has unilaterally adjourned debate on it. Why Senator Cools.......WHY, WHY, Why ????
