UNIONVILLE, Pennsylvania, January 23, 2006 ( – In September 2005, after having been reported missing for ten days, the bodies of two young American men were discovered at the bottom of a gorge in Laval Quebec. Mark Kraynak 23, of Uniontown PA, and Steven Wright, 20, of Guerneville, CA had entered Canada as male pornography “models” under the provisions of Canada’s ‘exotic dancer’ visa program. The programme was instituted to address what the Liberal government saw as a shortage of labour in Canada’s porn and sex trade.

Now Kraynak’s mother is demanding to know what is holding up the investigation and wants her son’s personal effects returned to her.

Kraynak speculates that the government has blocked the investigation until the end of the federal election because of international criticisms of its sex-trade immigration policy. “I am frustrated at the length of time this is taking,” Kraynak said. “The police are stalling through the Canadian elections. They don’t want to touch this.”

Kraynak said investigators have not contacted her as promised for more than three weeks.

“I continue to request information from Canada and they ignore me,” Kraynak told The Herald Standard. “That is why I’m calling congressman (John) Murtha again. Without someone here involved, they will not give me answers.”

The two young men entered Canada through an application by a male porn ‘modeling’ agency in the United States under the Liberal immigration policy that was criticized by international human rights agencies as promoting forced prostitution and other forms of exploitation and slavery.

In June 2005, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice released the fifth annual Department of State Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report which noted “Canada needs to use its anti-trafficking law to vigorously increase investigations, arrests, prosecutions, and convictions of traffickers, especially those who may be abusing visa waivers and entertainment visas.”

Laval police claimed that the men had been killed accidentally, speculating that they had refused to pay cab fare and had fallen to their deaths while running away. Laval police, however, admit that they have no evidence to support this claim and have not found the cab driver.
