Bishops issue sex trafficking letter in advance of Olympics

The Jan. 26 letter, signed by members of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (CCCB) Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace, notes that major sporting events often see “systems put in place to satisfy the demand for paid sex.”
