Most of which is easily debunked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just look at the kind of grand jobs and work environment they are creating for us::::
Here is an article illustrating the kind of life LIE-berals are setting up for the teeming swarms of illegals that LIE-berals have invited to Canada! With some comments of my own in brackets):
Amina Diaby died last year in an accident inside one of the GTA’s largest industrial bakeries where, the company says, worker safety is its highest concern. The 23-year-old was one of thousands of Ontarians who have turned to temporary employment agencies to find jobs that often come with low pay and little training for sometimes dangerous work.
The Star’s Sara Mojtehedzadeh went undercover for a month at the factory where Diaby worked.

There are two dozen of us crowded around a conveyor belt, bodies twisting to snatch dough off the line. The floor is strewn with raw pastries that seem to accumulate faster than anyone can sweep them up. They collect in bloated masses at our feet.
It is my first day as a temp at Fiera Foods, an industrial bakery that reeks of yeast and is alive with the constant drone of machinery.
We are forming and packing raw, circular pastry dough into wet plastic trays — a shoulder-crunching task called pinching. These may well be the croissants you eat for breakfast.
Supervisors shout at us to wake up. They shout at us to move faster, pinch nicer, work harder. No one talks through the noise and exhaustion.
The factory relies heavily on temporary help agency workers. Its health and safety record is checkered; three temps have died here or at Fiera’s affiliated companies since 1999.
Across the province, more and more people are relying on temp agencies to find work. When they do, statistics show they are more likely to get hurt on the job.
(Does this ugly work environment sound like some sort of Brave New World?)
I am undercover to investigate why.
During her undercover stint at Fiera Foods Sara Mojtehedzadeh worked on the croissant production line. She describes the pace of the work as crushing. Sara Mojtehedzadeh
Fiera’s current clients include some of the continent’s biggest brands including Dunkin’ Donuts and Sobeys; over the years it has made pastries for Costco, Tim Hortons, Metro, Walmart, and Loblaw. Its factories churn out baked goods by the truckload, destined for markets across North America and around the world. They can produce 2 million bagels alone per day.
Fiera said health and safety is a “core principle,” in response to questions from the Star. It said it contributes to Ontario’s “economic well-being” with more than 1,200 people working at its facilities in the GTA, and that it believes strongly in helping immigrants “find work and build their futures in Canada.” It also said it uses strict criteria when choosing temp agencies to work with. The company says it has given almost $1.5 million to health-care initiatives and minority communities over the past decade.
It has also received some $4.7 million in government loans and grants to expand capacity and create good jobs. The company says all employees are given “in-depth training” and that Fiera has invested half a million dollars in health and safety initiatives over the past two years.
(Oh- $4.7 million in govt loans and grants- so much for LIE-berals whining about Doug Ford and corporate welfare! Especially since Wynne-bag LIE-berals gave out $100 million dollars to Honda to expand its Alliston plant!)
I get about five minutes of training in a factory packed with industrial equipment.
I am paid in cash with no deductions or pay stubs. I pick up my wages from a payday lender, a 35-minute bus ride from the factory.
Fiera has been slapped with 191 orders for health and safety violations over the past two decades, for everything from lack of proper guarding on machines to unsafely stored gas cylinders.
(So what else is new- TSA had ticketed Sunrise Propane 3 times for illegally transferring propane from truck to truck INSTEAD of from truck to storage tank! Transferring from truck to truck allows static electricity to build up and it causes explosions- as the people around the Sunrise site- whose houses were demolished in the resulting blast can attest to!)
(Or we could talk about tv show W-5 that spent ten years exposing how unscrupulous used car dealers bought and rebuilt car wrecks and then sold them for handsome profits even though the cars were structurally unsound and unsafe in an accident! It took TEN YEARS of public shaming to get govt Hogs to take action against the wreck sellers!)
(LIE-berals TALK OFTEN about good jobs and worker safety but their mad tax policies are turning us into a nation of part timers and contract peons and temp agencies are facilitating the change!)
At least a dozen of the women I meet on my assembly line at Fiera, a multimillion dollar company, are hired through temp agencies.
Temp agency workers are changing the face of labour in Ontario.
In workplaces around the province, the use of temp agencies limits companies’ liability for accidents on the job, reduces their responsibility for employees’ rights, and cuts costs.
(Actually considering the premiums that are paid to temp agencies- I am not sure it does reduce cost to the employer! What it DOES DO is ensure a steady supply of workers who are still hungry for cash and not yet burned out!)
(LIE-berals and temp agencies are playing an UGLY WELFARE GAME with our money! The person on welfare or unemployment insurance can earn a certain amount of money before having benefits clawed back and companies are taking advantage of this! Desperate people who cannot live on their welfare payments are lured into these McJobs as a form of indentured servitude!)
(If you could get a real job you could get off welfare- but there are no real jobs because companies would rather deal with easily FIRED temp workers! And of course temp workers DO NOT get those PAID sick days that LIE-berals offered up as an election bribe! LIE-berals display their gross hypocrisy by whining that Ford is attacking workers by cancelling the two paid sick days that most workers do not get- meaning temp workers! Or that workers DO NOT NEED- meaning most civil service union Hogs already have wonderful sick leave provisions in place! LIE-berals LOVE two tier labour rates to benefit their PALS!!!!!!!!!!)
(LIE-berals are so generous to their friends that Ontari-owe teachers now have permission to stay home INDEFINITELY on full pay! Just phone in and cough and announce teacher will be staying home till........whenever!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Amina Diaby had been working at Fiera Foods for just two weeks when she was killed on the job.
When I walk into the factory, I see mostly people of colour. Many are new Canadians. Many told me they have taken this job for one reason: to survive.
In August, charges were laid against Fiera Foods under the Occupational Health and Safety Act for the 2016 death of a temp agency worker named Amina Diaby. Her hijab was caught in a machine, strangling her.
(Ah- as I suspected- the woman was Muslim! And we have had reports out of England that Muslims are more easily RADICALIZED if they do not get good, steady, reliable work! Will the husband and family of Amina Diaby think more or LESS kindly of Canada now that their family member has been killed at a sloppy work place?)
(And what of the Hijab? Most machinery of any sort carries labels WARNING SPECIFICALLY against the operator wearing loose clothing! Are Muslim women properly dressed to operate machinery safely? Sounds like NO!!!!!!!!)
She was 23 years old. She was a refugee trying to save for nursing school. She had been on the job two weeks.
(What price low cost croissants now if it incites angry Muslim terrorists?)
Fiera Foods’ Marmora St. factory in North York sits beside a highway and behind a Bingo hall, a sprawling presence on a small cul-de-sac dotted with storefront churches and auto-repair shops.
The company also owns another factory close by. Randy Risling
A white placard adorns the factory’s main entrance. It directs workers with “temporary employment” inquiries inside.
Fiera Foods is a private company founded by Boris Serebryany and Alex Garber in 1987, after the two men emigrated from the former Soviet Union. Fiera has another factory on Norelco Dr., about 15 minutes away from the Marmora St. plant. Boris and Alex are also the administrators of Tristar Bakers and Bakery Deluxe Co., located on Norfinch Dr.
(AH- And where would two Russian immigrants from the impoverished 1987 Soviet Union get the money to open such facilities? Shall we ask if it is a combination of Russian Mob money and exploitation of workers that is behind the success? And we KNOW LIE-berals do not bother to track laundered money!)
Adjacent to Fiera’s Marmora St. plant is Marmora Freezing Corp., whose administrators are Anna Garber and Boris’s daughter Carmela Serebryany-Harris. Carmela is also one of the administrators of CMS Ontario, along with Susin Svetlana Garber. David Gelbloom is the administrator of Upper Crust.
Fiera describes these five companies as its “alliance partners.”
(Uh huh-and this biz sounds just like the old days of the “Family Compact” in Upper Canada- that gang of Brit aristocrats - all related by blood and marriage who treated Canada like a private piggy bank! It took a rebellion to dump the Family Compact!)
(What will it take to bring peace between civil service union Hogs, the peons labouring for temp agencies, LIE-berals, and the illegals and immigrants who all expected something better from Canada? With ordinary Cdn tax payers caught in the middle?????)
