MP John McCallum will hold a news conference to talk about abuses

Federal Employment Minister Jason Kenney

OTTAWA — With much of the country’s fast food industry in foreign worker hiring limbo, debate over where the Temporary Foreign Workers program goes next continues in Ottawa.

Questions around abuses of the program have continued to be raised since April 25, when Employment Minister Jason Kenney placed a moratorium on new applications for temporary foreign workers from food services employers.

Today, Liberal MP John McCallum will hold a news conference to talk about those abuses, and propose solutions.

Labour and business groups are urging Kenney to change the program, both to curb abuses by employers and to ensure industry needs for workers are met.

    McDonalds here has TFW's and Trucking Companies advertise full time just to be allowed to bring in more TFW. They are treated like slaves even here on the "Gentle Island". Vote Liberal eh?
