Human Trafficking: Canada's Secret Shame

The Joy Smith Foundation has produced a documentary about human trafficking today in Canada, and the work of the Foundation and others to suppress it. It is an authentic story told by experts across Canada. Directors of leading NGOs speak about rescuing and rehabilitating survivors. A police officer talks about taking down trafficking rings and bringing perpetrators to justice. A reformed trafficker tells how he lured young girls into the sex trade. A parent whose daughter was trafficked recalls the heart wrenching agony of what he and his family went through. A survivor of human trafficking tells her story.
 
"It is critical that everyone watch the documentary to better understand how traffickers work so they can protect themselves and their families.” Megan Walker, Executive Director, London Abused Women’s Centre
 

 
 
The True Story of Canadian Human Trafficking. $24.95 with shipping & handling
Written by Paul H. Boge
Forward by Paul Brandt
 
This book is about Joy Smith’s journey on Parliament Hill, through the eyes of a young survivor.
 
This true story chronicles the perspective of its victims, the methods used for recruiting girls, the men who use them, the men who knowingly and sometimes unknowingly fuel the industry and the brave politicians and organizations who are in a constant fight to stop the industry and keep our nation strong and free from it.
 
The story revolves around Abby Summers –  a high school student from Markham, Ontario with a special love for soccer and dreams of a great future.  After receiving a message on social media from a new guy named Jake, the two form a friendship online. Abby begins to date Jake and falls for him quickly even imagining a future together with him. Her hope suffers a bad turn when he convinces her to sell herself to men for one night. As happens with many similar girls, one night turns into many with Jake convincing her to take a trip with him across Canada to make a lot of money for their life together. When Abby finally wants out she discovers she is trapped.
 
Meanwhile, an Ottawa Member of Parliament, Joy Smith, struggles to build support for a human trafficking bill to ensure minimum sentences are given to anyone convicted of luring girls into sex slavery. It is an uphill battle with many not believing human trafficking is happening to Canadian girls. Joy struggles to get her bill passed while working together with police and Abby's mother to rescue her from the underground prison of human trafficking.
