MPs, Human Rights campaigner push for anti-organ trafficking law.

Anastasia Lin and MPs Irwin Cotler and Garnett Genuis at screening of the movie "The Bleeding Edge", Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Genuis is trying to pass the bill introduced last session by Cotler that would make it illegal for Canadians to go abroad to buy "human organs that have been removed without donor consent or for financial gain." Lin, a former Miss World Canada, has been campaigning on behalf of Falun Gong and other political prisoners in China who are reported to have had their organs removed after execution. Lin also starred in The Bleeding Edge as one of these victims. Tory MP to revive Cotler's organ trafficking bill

Thoughts: How do you know your presenter is a former Miss Canada? Walks in four inch heels as easily as other people do sneakers. How do you know it's at Canada's parliament? Before walking through a metal detector, a man whips off his belt and puts it in the box without breaking stride.
