Thank you, Chair.
Thank you to the panel. I think everyone in this room has the same goal, and that is to assist those people who have been victimized by traffickers. To do that, one of the things, obviously, is that we all have to identify the victims and work with them.
From my perspective, to the social workers who are present, basically you have victims identified to you in some manner, whether you search the information out and identify them or whatever. Basically, they come to you. Would that be a fair assessment? I think that's basically it.
The police agencies, on the other hand, tend to be on the street and identify...as you indicated with the Grey Cup. They try to talk people into whatever it may be to give them assistance.
Would I be right in assuming that we could benefit everybody if we perhaps had more social workers on the street? I know what the police do, and I am 1,000% behind that, but we always end up with the police being seen, as the professor says, sometimes as the bad guy. I'm wondering if part of this equation is that we need more trained social people on the street.
That's to anyone.
