The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about a new foundation, established by Conservative MP Joy Smith, that assists victims of sex trafficking:
The Joy Smith Foundation is a registered, non-profit organization where “every red cent goes to the victims and the NGOs that take care of them,” Smith said in an interview from San Jose California Nov. 2. She was a keynote speaker at the city's Not for Sale 2012 Global Forum.

Nonpolitical and nonpartisan, the foundation is all about the victims. “I bring in the money for the people who need it,” she said.

She hopes the Canadian public become engaged and stand up for what’s right. “No one comes to Canada to be bought and sold but to build a new life,” she said. “This is not what our country stands for.”
