Canadian To Foreign To Canadian Worker Dodge In The Tar Sands...The Treacherous Double Down.


Well, well, well...

Whadd'ya know.

It looks the 'rehiring' of Canadian workers in the Tarsands was nothing but a PR stunt after all.

And that the workers originally fired have been stomped on, for no good reason at all, a second time:

Unionized Canadian workers at the Kearl oilsands mine who lost their jobs to temporary foreign workers from Croatia say the contractor has reneged on a promise to rehire them.

Last week, Pacer Promec announced it would rehire about 60 workers who are members of the Ironworkers Union.

On Monday, the company said that it has rehired Canadian workers -- but not the ones who were laid off.

Vic Nilson, one of the unionized workers who was laid off, says the company betrayed them.

“They said that we were all going to be reinstated and given our jobs back up there, with that company. And I've heard nothing,” he said....

And the silence from Jason Kenny is deafening:

...A spokesman for federal employment minister Jason Kenney says the matter is still under investigation...

What I'm curious about is where are the other Union members on the issue? They should be blocking roads and shutting down the site. If I were a Union rep there I would be asking the membership to strike.

Harper's corporations are, bottomless pits of greed. They are demanding cheap, cheap labor. So, Canadians are being laid off their resource jobs and being replaced by Harper's cheap foreign labor, for the corporations to exploit. Harper is an out and out blatant liar. Non of the foreigners will be sent back, to their own countries.

Harper is also bringing over thousands of Chinese for his, Northern BC mining plan.

Harper's henchmen are, useless, spineless, gutless wonders. How anyone with honor, decency, ethics and morals could possibly support that monster of a Harper boggles me.

Fair elections act? Hahahahaha. Harper should have stuck with his, robo-call election fraud.

Harper is the only Canadian PM ever, to be held in contempt of Parliament.
