I should be getting my flight & hotel info tomorrow - it is confirmed, I am speaking at the opening of the Alliance Against Modern Slavery -http://allianceagainstmodernslavery.org/ - FREEDOM CONCERT andINAUGURAL CONFERENCE in Toronto, Ontario on January 28th & 29th, 2011. I am very honoured to be invited to attend as a speaker and presenter and it will be nice to see some of the people I have met in my search for Jessie . . . including MP Joy Smith, author Professor Benjamin Perrin, Timea Nagy, Tamara Cherry, and it will be an honour to meet in person, some of the people I have been communicating with, like Karlee Sapoznik, Natasha Falle, Andrew Churchman and many others. And it will be a great opportunity to meet others working to combat human trafficking, just as I have been doing. It will be nice to have some new contacts, but more than that, it means many, many others will be learning about my missing daughter, JESSIE FOSTER's human trafficking case, and it also means more media attention.
