Laurie Scott calls the passage of her Saving the Girl Next Door Act a career highlight.

The Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, Brock M.P.P. says she pushed long and hard for the bill to become law.

The legislation offers more support to victims of human trafficking and allows them to sue their traffickers for damages.

Scott says getting the law passed was a long fight.

The bill was passed in Queen’s Park on May 18th and Scott says since then over 20 victims have come forward from the county.

Scott says she will continue touring the province to raise awareness of human trafficking.

She adds parents need to be more aware of what is happening in their children’s life.

Scott also introduced Bill 120 in the legislature, which unanimously passed its second reading in November.

The bill calls for mandatory sexual assault training for sitting judges and Scott is hopeful it will become law next year.
