can't believe a lot of girls got abused with it when they were all really young and dint' know anything and get used to earn money. Human beings are the worst!

Human being really is the worst but I hope there's less and less stories like this, I hope we all can do a little something to help

Canada's indigenous population is very small -- just 4% of the population -- yet more than 50% of all sex trafficking victims in Canada are indigenous. The reasons are complicated and varied but are ultimately rooted in a legacy of poverty, racism and abuse.

So very sad to hear this. Hopefully authorities can do more to stop this problem.

Another typical example of the devastation Colonialism has created. The world over, indigenous people are hard done by. look at Standing Rock!

Canada's indigenous communities are using social workers, police and the education system to battle sex trafficking of their girls, who are targeted more than any other population in the nation.

Together, they are determined to prevent children in their community from falling prey to sex traffickers who have been targeting their kids for years.

Awareness is the key. Talking to at risk girls and finding alternatives for women rescued.

The scene is similar at every large city across Canada from malls to outside of schools and at bus stations. Because of the targeting by sex traffickers, aboriginal children account for an astounding percentage of victims.

What is the government doing about this? How can there be a known trafficking issue and no one is doing anything about it. I am guessing they are getting paid off in some kind of way.

Just pure sick that people would have a preference so strong they will pay someone to kidnap them. Sick I tell you.

Goes to show you that they have no respect for anyone. Small countries big countries they do not care, they will snatch your daughter and sell her off. Horrible.

There remains a scarcity of accurate information about the trafficking ofIndigenous women and girls in Canada, and particularly in Ontario where evidence shows a large proportion of Canada’s trafficking occurs. At the same time, we know that Indigenous women and girls are vastly and disturbingly over-represented in all human trafficking and thus increased attention.
