The agricultural labour shortage drew the most heated conversation during last week’s election debate, sparked when the Green Party candidate referred to the temporary foreign worker program as slavery.
Representatives from the three other parties, including the Liberal agriculture minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau, Conservative critic Luc Berthold and NDP critic Alistair MacGregor, took umbrage with Kate Storey, a farmer and the Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa Green candidate, for her position.
“The Temporary Foreign Worker Program is just a Band-Aid,” Storey said during her answer to the last question of the event, which was organized by the Canadian Federation of Agriculture. “It’s nothing more than modern day slavery. It has to go.”
