As MP for seven years Terence worked with Oakville’s Shae Invidiata who founded FREE THEM and his Conservative colleague Joy Smith to fight human trafficking in Canada. The government initiated 5-year penalty for trafficking here, and made it illegal for Canadians to travel out-side Canada to have sex with children. But most importantly they introduced one of the most progressive bills in the world based on the progressive Norwegian model, to protect women who are bullied into prostitution and trafficked and help them flee their traffickers, by outlawing the purchase of sex, instead of selling sex. (The Liberals voted this bill)
