NS man facing human trafficking charges in Ont.

A Nova Scotia man is facing a number of charges, including human trafficking, after a year long investigation involving seven provinces.

It’s alleged some men originally from Nova Scotia had moved to Ontario and were trafficking and exploiting numerous Nova Scotian women in the sex trade across Canada.

31 year old Lorenzo Trevor Thomas, who was arrested in Niagara Falls, is facing 17 charges, including trafficking in persons and assault.
