The problem of human trafficking has gained increased international attention in the last ten years. Despite this, people seeking a better future continue to be trafficked and end up in circumstances of slavery and violence without ever being reported as victims of human trafficking.
Whereas NGOs working with abused women had to fight hard to get the problem on the political agenda in the 1990s, and media attention was limited to sensationalist headlines about sex slaves, anti-human trafficking legislation has become a priority for foreign policy since 2000.
This can be seen in the evolution of international legislation, such as the Palermo Protocol from 2000, the Council of Europe Convention from 2005, and the latest EU Directive from 2011, as well as the number of international and intergovernmental organizations fighting human trafficking. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the Council of Europe, and other UN bodies all have their own anti-trafficking initiatives.

Some businesses consider shoplifting losses to be a “cost of doing business,” passing on the added costs to consumers in the form of higher prices. Most retailers, however, are opposed to this approach for different reasons. Small companies, too, fear raising prices in order to remain competitive or simply stay in operation.
The criminal threshold for shoplifting/larceny is $1,000 or more in 29 states. Shoplifting is a misdemeanor in states where the fine is less than that ($950 in California), which means less police intervention and limited, if any, punishment.
As a result, shoplifters have become more brazen in recent years, increasing their verbal harassment and threats of physical violence during robbery attempts. According to Mark Doyle, producer of The Annual Retail Survey, the individuals most at risk are store staff and customers.
Every year, the figures show that retail crime is getting worse, with no end in sight, according to Doyle. The number of shoplifters and dishonest workers has risen in eight of the last ten years, as has the amount of money confiscated from those arrested.

On Wednesday, just before 6 a.m., Peel Police claim $50,000 worth of milk was stolen from the back of a large transport truck in Mississauga. On Sunday, Hamilton Police requested the public’s assistance in locating $100,000 worth of blueberries and other fruit after suspects obtained access to a commercial truck and drove it into Toronto.
According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, stolen property worth $42.3 million was registered to their offices in 2016. These are low-risk, high-reward crimes that the Bureau believes are a big issue in Canada, costing the Canadian economy $5 billion per year.
“It’s usually word of mouth, an underground network, or someone knows someone who knows someone,” Beacock says. “They may be sold on the black market to grocery shops and variety stores.”
Trucking companies aren’t often reporting cargo theft incidents to IBM, either because they’re unfamiliar with the system or because they’re afraid the incident will affect their insurance, according to Beacock. According to the IBM, reporting these crimes would have no impact on your insurance premiums.

According to Tom Moore, a former police officer and now president of Canadian Armed Robbery Training Associates, “too many people turn a blind eye to the expense of cargo robberies, even though it’s run by organized crime gangs and the proceeds go toward financing more violent crimes and drug trafficking.”
In 2015, the average bank robbery netted $4,330, compared to $1,589 for supermarket robbery and $769 for convenience store robbery. A thief who uses a weapon to commit such a crime faces a minimum sentence of four years in jail. They face at least a year in prison if they use a pellet gun. “You don’t have any of those minimum sentences for cargo theft,” Moore explained.
There are, admittedly, more tools than in the past. For selling or possessing stolen goods, the relatively recent Auto Theft and Property Crime Act imposes a maximum sentence of 14 years. But that is how the law is written. Moore said, “I guarantee no one will get 14 years.”
Moore said, “We have budget constraints and investigative goals, and every interest group believes their investigation is the most important.” The irony is that cargo robberies often serve as a springboard for a number of other illegal activities.
