|Conservative MP Joy Smith|
The B.C. Catholic has a story from Deborah Gyapong, Canadian Catholic News's eye on Ottawa, about the upcoming passage of MP Joy Smith's anti-trafficking bill:
Bill C-310 will receive royal assent June 28 and become law.
It makes human trafficking an extra-territorial offence under the Criminal Code, thus allowing Canada to prosecute citizens and permanent residents for human-trafficking offences committed in other countries where there might be weak laws, inadequate policing, and/or ineffective justice systems.Read the full story at The B.C.
