Temporary foreign worker dies in freak accident, leaves chilling testimony


Es como si fuera yo…un perro,” he says of his boss. “It’s like I’m the dog, and she’s my owner.”

He describes long hours, unpaid overtime and limited freedom.

The farm where former worker Ivan Guerrero died, in which police have ruled an accident, is in Ormstown, Que. (Radio-Canada)

“We are human beings, and I would like to be treated with more dignity,” he says into the camera.  

Guerrero had been coming to Canada for four years, picking vegetables and sending his earnings to his wife and two children back in Mexico. On the first day of what would have been his fifth summer in the country, he died while trying to fix a leak near his living quarters. It took three days for someone to contact authorities.

after hearing about all of the abuses to the tfw program, the tory’s only action was to force employers to pay a one time $1,000 fee for each foreign worker they hired. no new protections have been forthcoming despite the numerous abusive situations that emerge, and i have low hopes for change now.
