Our local MPP is commending police services across Ontario for its success of Operation Northern Spotlight.

Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP Laurie Scott says this project is an important multi-jurisdictional effort targeting human sex trafficking.

Scott says police charged over 40 people, with nearly 80 offences.

She says this crime is in our neighbourhoods, and in every corner of Ontario.

Scott says our province has been recognized as a major hub of human sex trafficking.
