Aboriginal ex-child prostitute warns of sex trade on ships

This could also have gone under Aboriginal issues.

An Anishinabe woman who worked as a child prostitute in Thunder Bay, Ont., is speaking out after reports from an American researcher saying indigenous women are being sold on ships in Lake Superior.

The researcher, Christine Stark, said her 'exploratory' research includes interviews with First Nations women who say they were trafficked on ships between Thunder Bay and Duluth, Minnesota.

Bridget Perrier recalls working as a prostitute on ships in Lake Superior. She said police need to do more to keep indigenous women safe

i have heard of this in meetings up north in prince rupert, here by the port of vancouver and have seen it in halifax. we do need to do more. we have mentioned it in our reports but its good to see something really focused on it.

on a ship, there' nowhere to run, there is no escape. scarey.
