Abstract: OTTAWA — A Canadian teenager signs up for a modelling program and, unbeknownst to her parents, is forced to have sex with strangers while travelling in Europe. A Mexican woman is smuggled into Canada illegally, and turns tricks against her will above a downtown Toronto drugstore. The RCMP estimates that 800-1,200 people in Canada, the vast majority of them women, are victims of human trafficking each year, but non-governmental organizations peg the number in the thousands
