Format: Hardcover
In the past few years I have been studying human trafficking and reading every book I could get my hands on. This is the first book to extensively research trafficking in Canada and I found it incredibly informative and helpful. I've read books covering the topic in so many other countries and while I was aware that it is just as prolific in Canada but I had a hard time finding research on it. This book covers it all and also offers great and reasonable solutions that we can accomplish if we work together and stand up to injustice. The fact is that there is more slavery today than any other time in history should be a wake up call. The trans-atlantic slave trade of black people was only a drop in the ocean compared to what is happening today. My hope is that everyone who reads this book will become an abolitionist and be responsible with teh information they have gained.

PRAISE FOR INVISIBLE CHAINS

"Many Canadians think they are far removed from issues like human trafficking and sexual exploitation. This book proves otherwise by explaining exactly how these types of serious human rights violations occur on a day-to-day basis at home and abroad."
- Roméo Dallaire, Lieutenant General (ret'd), Senator

"The women depicted here are heartbreakingly recognizable. Their exploitation is occurring right on our doorsteps, and Invisible Chains is a powerful indictment of human trafficking in Canada."
- Deepa Mehta, filmmaker

"This book shines light into the darkest corners of Canada. An unflinching account of modern-day slavery in our communities, it will leave you shocked, outraged, and compelled to act."
- Preston Manning, former Leader of the Official Opposition

"Compelling, powerful, and thought-provoking. Invisible Chains is a riveting journey that exposes Canada's role in the international trade in people."
- Lloyd Axworthy, former Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade

"Invisible Chains cracks open what must be our shocking secret - Canada's thriving sex slavery industry. Benjamin Perrin has a gift for storytelling and I can't think of a more important story to tell."
- Monte Solberg, former Minister of Citizenship and Immigration

"Perrin provides an in-depth account of domestic sex trafficking in Canada, how it is affecting First Nations in alarming rates, and provides the necessary awareness and tools to combat human trafficking."
- Grand Chief Ron Evans, Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs

"Perrin documents how debt and intimidation--if not shackles--produce slavery right in North America.
