wow that's crazy. Not sure what it has to do with the Temp Foreign Worker Program, as that program is for legitimate work. The story says these people were lured to Canada, it doesn't mention that program at all.

It appears this started before Ford took over, but it's likely linked to the mentality that got him elected.

LOL - and what mentality was that? Who else were the people of Ontario supposed to vote for? The idiot Horvath?
Justin Trudeau is a peanut-chucking snollygoster snowflake. But he has nice dimples. Remember, the hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds.

So I know this has little to do with the topic at hand... but tell me if this is actually messed up or if it's brilliant. I thought of it, so I say it's brilliant lol


Let's say "someone" develops a LEGITIMATE type of system where you can actually buy a worker from somewhere to live at your house. LIKE a slave, but not really...

I know, you're already freaked out, but hear me out. It'd go something like this:

People from another country who are DIRT poor, sign up for this work visa program. I hire someone to be my live in worker.

Now they aren't a slave, because I HAVE to provide the following:

1) Room/Board
2) A very very modest wage (because room/board is included, plus the risk of hosting you in the program)
3) Standard of living

Essentially you are hiring a maid, cook, babysitter, etc... but it's from a poor country.

They work for (to us) pennies on the dollar, but it gives them more money than they'd get back home and a better standard of living than they'd get back home. They work for say 5 years. If there are no issues within the program (rules and standards must be developed) and they are law abiding citizens, they get citizenship. They can move out and do their own thing (or stay with you, if for some reason they want).

They are guaranteed days off.
They are limited to a certain amount of hours per week.
Spot checks and home inspections are mandatory and certified.
People applying to hire them must be approved, criminally back ground checked and have full time jobs.

Make the rules stringent and the punishment for abusing the system severe.

Win/win !

The Truth is telling the truth. Corrupt to the core. All of it.
Some may view my above politically incorrect opinions as 'harsh' and may even be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

Actually, we are all slaves to a corrupt economic system that is designed to funnel all your money in one direction - out of your pockets and into the pockets of the elite.

Carbon tax is a joke - simple legislation will force offending industries to comply or pay huge fines, it is just another method of extorting your hard earned money.

20% C/C interest is nothing more than loan sharking, but sanctioned by the "Private" banking system and their puppet governments, and should be criminalized because it destroys the future of our people like cigarette smoking destroys your health. We live in a buy now and pay the rest of your life society - because Credit Cards are too easy to get - cheap bank loans impossible to get - and kids learn this at a young age - get trapped and the rest is elementary. When I was young, only the wealthy could have a C/C ( American express actually) and that had to be paid off monthly, there were no ATM's with Overdraft protection, you paid for groceries by cash or cheque and major purchases for car or home were done at reasonable interest rates through banks or private mortgage lenders - if you didn't have the money - you waited until you did and the economy rolled on just fine.

Now count the cards, and who carries them - ALMOST EVERYONE - and I'm willing to bet over 90% carry a balance and pay 20% on the balance - and that is "after tax money".

Think about this people - how many public schools teach children "Economic Responsibility" - I'll bet few to none - because it's counter productive to big business and big banks, and those that invest in them.
Apathy = the Death of Freedom - be accountable or be a slave!

I don't believe for 1 second our Governments aren't fully aware of this totally corrupt scam ?

Why does our Immigration allow any TFW to enter Canada without having valid paper work that states exactly who sponsored them & where will they will be working & the length of stay ?

It's allowed because we are told there is a shortage of workers & we must be able to compete in world markets & MSM tells us it's true ?

The truth is it's nothing but pure greed that's allowing this corruption to flourish & any worker from anywhere will do & how they are treated doesn't matter.
