Migrant workers caravan hits Toronto en route to Parliament Hill

Date

2016

Résumé

Foreign workers who do work Canadians won’t call for labour rights and an end to exploitation.As symbols go, the schedule of the “Harvesting Freedom Caravan” that hit Toronto on Sunday could hardly have been better designed.Activists campaigning for an end to exploitation of migrant workers in Canada set out on Labour Day weekend from the Ontario town of Leamington, home to the largest concentration of agricultural greenhouses in North America.They aim to conclude in Ottawa — where they say the problem must be addressed — just before Thanksgiving weekend, when Canadians across the country will be preparing to chow down on what the caravaners describe as the fruits and produce of injustice.
