It's not a Temporary Foreign Worker Program. It's a LEGALIZED Human Trafficking Program. What is really shocking is that the government punishes the victims while the get off scot-free.

CIBC customers are abandoning the bank in droves, with some even posting photos of themselves cutting up their bank cards on social media, following the financial institution’s decision to fire 130 Canadian workers and force them to train their replacements from India.

Mr. Kenney’s department approved thousands of LMO/LMIA’s during his term as Minister of Employment and Social Development; many in the 6 months following the TFWP reforms. One advocacy group, Canadians Against the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (CATFWP), has suggested Mr. Kenney all but ensured the labour market was flooded by cheap labour. In CATFWP’s view, Mr. Kenney cares more about profits for industry than jobs for Canadians or the rights of migrant workers. A conclusion, they argue, that’s reinforced by the type and timing of the LMO/LMIA’s Kenney approved as Minister. A striking example they give is the large number of LMIA approvals for oil and gas companies during the 2014 oil price slump; a time when many Canadians were in desperate need of jobs.

"Canadian companies would go out of business without hardworking temporary foreign workers" - Jason Kenney.

Firstly, Kenney is lying through his teeth. He knew that there was no labour shortage.

Secondly, Kenney seems to imply that businesses need "hardworking" TFWs because Canadians are too lazy to even apply. This is a dangerous myth propagated by corporations to malign hardworking Canadians and use as an excuse to throw local workers out of their jobs and bring in cheap indentured foreign labour instead.

Canadians Against the Temporary Foreign Worker Program

"Canadian companies would go out of business without hardworking temporary foreign workers" - Jason Kenney.

Firstly, Kenney is lying through his teeth. He knew ...that there was no labour shortage*.

Secondly, Kenney seems to imply that businesses need "hardworking" TFWs because Canadians are too lazy to even apply. This is a dangerous myth propagated by corporations to malign hardworking Canadians and use as an excuse to throw local workers out of their jobs and bring in cheap indentured foreign labour instead.

Not only is Kenney killing our jobs, he is assassinating our character. He wants the world to think that Canadian workers are good for nothing lazy louts.

It's not only Kenney wants to see this traitor become the Premier of Alberta. Businesses are smacking their lips at the prospect of having their favourite shill running the show in Edmonton.

Jason Kenney launched a relentless assault on Albertan workers when he was the Minister of Employment by approving tens of thousands of Labour Market Opinions/Impact Assessments (LMOs/LMIAs) to bring in Temporary Foreign Workers to throw Canadian workers out of their jobs.

Even after he introduced his "reforms," the flooding of the labour market with cheap indentured labour did not stop, as this map shows.

Even after he introduced his "reforms," the flooding of the labour market with cheap indentured labour did not stop, as this map shows.

Even as Albertans were being laid off due to the oil price slump, Kenney's department approved bulk LMIAs from oil and gas companies, sometimes allowing them to bring hundreds of temporary foreign workers at once.

No only was Kenney's assault killing jobs. As unemployment soarded, so did the suicide rates in Alberta.

Kenney killed Albertans by killing our jobs.

As RBC was replacing Canadian workers with Temporary Foreign Workers, Kellie Leitch defended the TFW program citing "labour shortages". Leitch lied. Her own government's 2011 report showed that no such labour shortages existed, and, that they forecast no labour shortage in the following decade.

Because lying to help corporations throw Canadians out of their jobs is a Canadian Value®.

Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, MaryAnn Mihychuk, in a telephone interview with Thinkpol, duly confirmed that the previous Conservative administration had indeed approved Alstar’s request for TFWs, citing a May 7, 2015 Labour Market Impact Assessment.

Earlier this month, via an anonymous source, Thinkpol.ca received information that an Alberta-based contractor for the oil and gas industry was recently granted approval for 10 temporary foreign workers (TFWs) while Canadian workers were left in the cold.

'As an academic, I can attest from personal experience (& countless hours on various committees) at several BC & Ontario universities.

I...n the '80s and '90s, American & British academics (predominantly) were hired in large numbers by Canadian universities. At the time, Canadian doctoral programs were not graduating enough Ph.D.s to address faculty retirements and departmental expansions.

Today, many of those early "foreign-hires" are now deans, departmental chairs and senior administrators...A "hire your own" mentality exists...exemptions from prescribed hiring procedures (the terms of the Federal Contractors Program - including provisions to privilege applications from Canadian citizens & Permanent Residents) can be requested by ANY university department in Canada.

A close colleague in HR at the University of Victoria has confirmed that almost 60% of recent tenure-stream appointments there are "special hires", meaning exemptions were requested from standard hiring policies. Any suggestion that qualified Canadians were unavailable to assume these posts is untenable.'

Note: it makes sense to bring in some academics from outside Canada - but how about, say, requiring that 75% of new & tenure-track hires be already permanent Canadian residents?

There already was a stream for academic immigrants, and expanding into the TFW programs is unconscionable.

Alberta is the most resource rich province in Canada, yet, thousands of Albertans have to struggle to feed their families. Our soil, seas and sand have been sold to foreign corporations who wish to strip our lands bare leaving with foreign labour leaving nothing behind but rock and rubble.

Today, you have the power to rescue our bountiful province from the clutches of these greedy corporations and their morally bankrupt PC backers so that our children and grand children can enjoy Alberta's natural wealth.

Please vote.
