“Mr. Speaker, yesterday I was thrilled to join Minister for Public Safety in Montreal to announce our government’s next step in the fight to combat modern day slavery.

“As our government committed in the 2012 National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking, the Minister for Public Safety announced the launch of a special RCMP Enforcement Team to Combat Human Trafficking which will be based in Montreal.

“Members of the special RCMP team will work closely with law enforcement partners in the Province of Québec and across Canada to tackle and dismantle vicious human trafficking rings and bring freedom to its many victims.

“In fact only hours after yesterday’s announcement, the team arrested four massage parlour operators as part of Project Combative which has been targeting a ring of traffickers responsible for luring young Romanian women to Canada.

“I want to thank the Minister of Public Safety for his particular dedication to ending modern day slavery and invite all members to join me in commending the work of the RCMP’s new integrated enforcement team."
