Jenny Kwan, the NDP MP for Vancouver East and the critic for Multiculturalism, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship says, it's a good first step, but the changes don't go far enough to protect all migrant workers. She wants the government to provide migrant workers with open work permits and landed status when they come to Canada.
"If they're good enough to work here, aren't they good enough to stay?" asked Kwan.
Kwan says the new regulation doesn't help the 27 foreign workers she's currently trying to get open permits for.
