Very good and very important work is being done by World Vision Canada at nochildforsale.ca. As the research by World Vision shows the exploitation of children extends to sexual trafficing. Apparently the exploitation of children knows no limits.

In the longer term we must demand pubic reassurance from our retail stores that their supply chains are free from child labour.
You can start by signing the petition at nochildforsale.ca. Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end.
