Summary Translation: The Ontario Premier Doug Ford said at his daily press conference that “an immigrant worker who has been wronged to contact my office, and I will take care of the issue myself.” The press conference today witnessed a long discussion about the inhumane conditions that immigrant workers are exposed to on Canadian farms in Essex-Windsor. The issue had been raised due to the spread of Coronavirus in the region, which also caused the delay in its transition to the second stage. It is reported that the Coronavirus spread occurred among immigrant workers on the farms. Ford said that a foreign worker will not be allowed to be humiliated and that they are protected just like Canadians, adding that any worker who feels wronged should contact Ford's offices and he will take care of the matter himself. It is known that there are temporary immigrant workers who come to Canada for seasonal work on farms and these are not entitled to permanent residence in Canada and will return to their country upon the end of their contract.
