From the CBC: A judge handed down a two-year prison sentence Friday to a Halifax businessman who exploited foreign workers, saying he wanted to send a wider message to employers across the country.
Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Glen McDougall said people who bring temporary foreign workers to Canada “should not dare” to follow the example of Hector Mantolino.
“The Temporary Foreign Workers Program is not a licence to attract hard-working nationals from other countries so they can be brought to Canada to be taken advantage of,” he said.
“This is not what Canada is about. This is not what Canadians stand for.”
