On March 7th, a van carrying farmworkers in BC's Fraser Valley crashed, killing three people. According to an article in the Tyee,"Farm Workers' Deaths: A Tragedy Foretold," farm worker advocates, members of the B.C. Federation of Labour and New Democrat politicians have long criticized the BC Liberals for not regulating worker safety. The BC Federation of Labour has submitted Recommendations to protect the lives and rights of BC farmworkers (in PDF) to improve the working conditions and safety of BC farmworkers.
