During that period, 534 child victims have been identified and rescued in Ontario. Another 51 child victims were identified from outside of Ontario.

I just browsed the FB friends of one of the accused, and man, talk about the underbelly… (even if this doesn’t get posted) you’ve got to check it out. One of those friends has about 200 kids and young adults — from Thailand, Philipines, etc) as his “friends”.

Surely, their family members and others should find this weird… and if not, hmmmm.
