RESTORED:

A Journey to Freedom Oakville, Apr10,15

Sanctuary Church, Oakville

“What you see in Oakville and Burlington, it’s just a drop in the bucket from what you see in Mississauga and Toronto,” said John Cassells, a street youth specialist with SIM Canada, a Scarborough-based international missionary organization. “In Canada, two out of every five prostitutes are teenage girls under 18 years old.”

Cassells was one of four people on a discussion panel at Restored: A Journey to Freedom, an awareness forum held at Sheridan’s Marquee last Friday, organized by Partners International Canada, a Christian ministry charity.  http://thesheridansun.ca/blog/2015/04/16/the-dark-world-of-human-trafficking/
