Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member for Kildonan—St. Paul, who is a true champion for women.
This law is having a direct impact on prostitution in Canada. Hamilton police recently rescued a missing 15-year-old girl from exploitation as a prostitute. Her pimp was charged twice under this new law. Durham region's human trafficking unit rescued a 16-year-old and her pimp is now facing charges as well, charges that were not previously available. We are proud of this impact of the new law.
I congratulate our law enforcement members everywhere, who are working hard each and every day to keep our communities and streets safe.
