Lent 35: On the streets

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

Social workers in Toronto estimate that there are 10,000 children living on the streets, and that many of them fall prey to pimps. More than 400 children, some as young as 11, are reported as working for pimps in Calgary and 300 to 600 in Montreal. Hundreds of children are being abused as prostitutes in the province of British Columbia, which has the highest incidence of child prostitution in Canada.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.
