PLAYGROUND: the film - Tuesday June 30, 2015

PLAYGROUND:  the film is a documentary to make people aware that whenever there is a big event in a large city, child sex trafficking increases to service people who will be coming to the city.  For instance:

In an interview with ABC news, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot said:

"When fans flock to the Dallas Cowboys' stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, few will be thinking about anything other than touchdowns and tailgates.

But nearby, in hotels, motels and on street corners, Texas authorities say a "dark side" will exist, one where children are sold for sex by pimps. And those sex traffickers are descending on the area.

People are thinking of the Packers and the Steelers and the game on the field, having a good time and Super Bowl commercials. Most don't think about a 12-year-old being forced to dance naked. The Super Bowl is a magnet for child sex traffickers."

With the PanAm Games coming to Toronto, this is going to happen and we should be aware and know the signs so that, if we are presented with an opportunity to make a difference in a child's life, we can.

After the film, there will be a discussion for those who wish to participate.  Someone will also be introducing information the RCMP is making available to the public.
