BC libs allow Chinese company not to hire local

Post by maryjane48 »

HD Mining International, building a large coal mine in northern British Columbia using Chinese workers, will take four years before it hires even a single Canadian miner, and another decade beyond that before the work force is fully local, court documents show.

According to documents made public on Wednesday by the B.C. Federation of Labour, HD Mining plans to use up to 201 workers from China to staff the mine through 30 months of construction and two years of ramp-up and mining.


this company is allowed to not hire local for 4 years .


choice is clear

bclibs = no jobs for local


ndp are commited to jobs for bcers

do you have a link Maryjane?
the newest info I could find was a year old.

If memory serves me correctly they got away with it by requiring all applicants to speak Mandarin.
