Canada's Temporary Foreign Workers: Do we really need woke, modern slavery during the COVID crisis?

Cargill's meat processing plant in High River, Alberta is home to the biggest viral hotspot for the Wuhan flu in all of Canada.

The Cargill plant, along with the JBS slaughterhouse, employs Temporary Foreign Workers through a federal program that brings people in from poor countries to work for low wages, all while Canada's unemployment hits 20 per cent.

The outbreak of more than 500 cases at Cargill is so severe that it's the reason the province has struggled to #FlattenTheCurve.

“The rest of Alberta is fine, it could go back to work now, were it not for these massive outbreaks at these foreign migrant plantations.”

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show (click here to subscribe!), we looked at the international companies continuing to use the Temporary Foreign Worker program during an economic crisis that has put two million Canadians on unemployment.
