The Conversation: Canada must end complicity in China’s brutal organ trafficking regime

The following article from Maria Cheung, Professor of Social Work, was published online on The Conversation:

Bill S-240 seeks to put a stop to Canadian complicity by criminalizing organ tourism. The bill has received unanimous consent from both the Senate and the House of Commons, and is awaiting final Senate approval before the end of the parliamentary session before it can be passed.

This is a critical moment of decision for Canada.
