Up the working class! Trudeau to roll out red carpet for more temporary foreign workers

My national newspaper of record has a front pager today titled Ottawa prepares to ease rules on temporary foreign workers by Bill Curry. Bill provides a quote from Immigration Minister John McCallum which succinctly captures the Trudeau government's commitment to working people in Canada, almost 1.5 million of whom are at this very moment officially unemployed;

We're also going to reduce some of the barriers and the silly rules... in order to give companies the freedom to bring in the best and the brightest.

Yup, that's why Canadians voted in Justin and his Liberal Party; to give the corporate sector more freedom.

So it's back to business as usual after the Harperites were shamed into tightening up the scandalous TFW program a couple of years back. All those Timmies stores across the west can resume importing the best and the brightest coffee servers from Mexico and the Philippines, folks delighted to work for minimum wage.

The fish processing plants on the east coast can bring in the best and the brightest fish plant workers and continue to pay starvation wages. After all, who needs to pay a living wage when some desperate foreigner is happy to work for next to nothing?

There you go, corporate sector, Justin's not such a scary guy after all, is he?
