I imagine the recent questions to Prime Minister Trudeau stem from these bannings. And I've never heard of human trafficking allegations being made before. According to some of the articles below, allegations were made on social media. I'd be curious to know the specifics. Assuming they are indeed false, there is still much to be concerned about - as with any cult.

Having said that, certainly the typical activities of cults would seem to meet some of the criteria set out in this definition. I bolded a few such phrases:

Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.
