I am very saddened to hear of a 500% increase in human trafficking & exploitation in Alberta, even sexual exploitation. This is why I'm so glad that the Young Womens Christian Association (YWCA) & its Executive Director, Jacqueline Foord have been given a federal grant to battle this issue. It affects mainly women & young girls. Still, men & boys are also victims & when we are supposed to promote freedom of dignity & human rights in today's modern age & then still have in affect enslavement of people, there is definitely something wrong with society!
