Sex workers call on police to stop human trafficking visits
Last week, the police took part in a cross-Canada operation targeting human trafficking. They scoured online escort sites, looking for girls and women they suspect may have been trafficked. They posed as Johns and set up appointments. No arrests were made.
Caroline Newcastle (a pseudonym) says taking this approach when combating human trafficking does more harm than good. Newcastle is an independent escort, and she's also a member of POWER, the local sex worker advocacy group.
