Every day, migrant workers are met with preventable dangers at work. Ralston White and Paul Roach were two Jamaican men who had been working under the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program at Filsinger Farms near Owen Sound, Ontario. In September they became the latest victims of clear workplace health and safety violations. We hear more from Tzazna Miranda Leal with Justicia For Migrant Workers about these tragic fatalities.

Migrant agricultural workers like the late Ralston and Paul, grow, harvest and process much of the food Canadians enjoy, but instead of feasting at the dinner table this coming Thanksgiving weekend, a great many of migrant workers from Ontario fields, farms and factories will undertake Justicia For Migrant Workers' first “Pilgrimage to Freedom”. This is an arduous march of more than 50 kilometres from Leamington to the Windsor's Monument for Freedom, dedicated to the underground railroad that brought slaves to freedom in Canada. Tzazna also talks about why.

Justicia For Migrant Workers is a volunteer-run collective that strives to promote the rights of migrant farm workers (participating in the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program and the Low Skilled Workers Program) and farm workers without status.
