Public Safety Minister Vic Toews announced Tuesday that the federal government is joining forces with Crime Stoppers to get the Canadian public's help in reporting and detecting signs of potential human trafficking, the CBC reported. The announcement comes in light of last month's arrival of the MV Sun Sea, a ship that carried hundreds of Tamil migrants. The effort is being billed the "Blue Blindfold" campaign.
