The B.C. Labour Relations Board has ruled that the Mexican government blacklisted seasonal agriculture workers who formed a union at their workplace in the lower B.C. mainland.

The Board found that the Mexican government improperly interfered by identifying workers who were a part of United Food and Commercial Workers at Sidhu & Sons Nursery, a flower growing operation in Abbotsford, B.C. and prevented them from returning to Canada to work under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SWAP).

image: James Di Fiore

This piece is an apology. Although I do not believe a story I wrote single-handedly changed electoral law, it has been used to support the development of the Fair Elections Act.

I am one of eight people who, since 1992, have been convicted of a voter fraud offence in Canada. The exact wording of my charge was "Applying to be on a list of electors twice."
