Yep that's right, it would appear the solution isn't as simple as say.. not using foreign temporary workers, for that would harm the economy so instead we are going to further dismantle "freedom" and "democracy" because quite frankly those things just get in the way of the economy anyway. Yes this new policy aptly compliments the selective enforcement capabilities of the existing Temporary foreign worker program nicely by now allowing the government to selectively (and arbitrarily) decide who to investigate for taking advantage of the TFW program according to the unenforceable guidelines as set out by the government. I'm sure all of those corporate "people", pals of the government, will be getting their fair share of "inspections" too, right? Haha, right!
This sure is a convenient excuse in the meantime to push ahead with the Canadian police state, we're quickly catching up to the U.S. which is well as it should be as a lot of time was lost in continuous minority governments until magically the Harper Conservatives with the help of Pierre Poutine managed to squeeze out a bare majority. Policy implemented by the elites is always multi-faceted; now we have a TFW exploitation problem and we'll have warrantless searches too, how fun!
Of course, the greatest abusers of "temporary foreign workers" is China, the guys who we are bending over backwards to acquiesce to their requests. The guys who also coincidentally just ship in the "foreign" workers from their own country. The guys who we like to think of as just "playing capitalism" while in reality they are strategically taking control of essential assets and giving out the U.S.'s debt in return for them. How many Chinese companies operating here do you think will be randomly searched to see if they're operating within our diminishing labour laws? Consider how hard we're working to help China advertise their takeover as "made in Canada".
