Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Reform the Temporary Foreign Worker's Program

Jenny's question in the House of Commons on November 3rd 2017:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, four temporary foreign workers have won the right to a class action suit against Mac's and the immigration consultant companies owned by Kuldeep Bansal. The migrant workers paid as much as $8,500 to Bansal to obtain jobs with Mac's, only to arrive in Canada and find that those jobs did not exist.

An FOI revealed that LMIAs were issued for 486 positions for Mac's. The CBSA has investigated this case for five years and recommends that charges be laid. Why has the government not acted on the recommendations of the CBSA?"
