The RCMP says it's working with Craigslist to try to stop erotic ads that many fear are a cover for prostitution from being posted on the company's website in Canada.
Craigslist shut down its adult services section in the United States on Saturday and replaced it with a black bar that simply says "censored."
But the Canadian site still has an "erotic" link listed under services.
RCMP Sergeant Marie-Claude Arsenault said at a news conference in Winnipeg that the RCMP Human Trafficking National Co-ordination Centre has met with Craigslist on several occasions.
Sgt. Arsenault said Craigslist has measures in place in the U.S. - such as censoring erotic ads - that Mounties would like to see in Canada.
Sidneyeve Matrix, a media professor at Queen's University, says Craigslist faced a huge wave of pressure in the U.S. and there's a similar pushback in Canada.Report Typo/Error
