The human trafficking boom in the Greater Toronto Area has forced a 15-year-old visitor from British Columbia to provide sex to as many as 10 clients a day for about three weeks. The underage girl was reportedly drugged and forced into the sex trade by three men now facing a total of 15 human trafficking and material benefit charges.

According to Inside Toronto, the British Columbia girl visiting relatives in Ontario last September 2015, met a man with whom she exchanged mobile phone numbers. In November, he texted her for a date, and she agreed to meet him. He showed up with another man to pick her up, and a police press release on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, said her two companions “supplied her with a large quantity of alcohol and drugs” that made her compliant to their human trafficking gig.

Police indicated that the teen was then taken to a Toronto hotel where she would provide the sex in their human trafficking scheme. The police report detailed how she was coerced into the trade.
