THE END OF IMMIGRATION
In Canada, when we think of “temporary workers,” the image that comes to mind are the seasonal agricultural workers who have been working in our fields for the past 40 years, or the live-in nannies and maids from the Philippines. But these days, temporary foreign workers are found in all sectors: fast food, service stations, city bus drivers. The End of Immigration?, uncovers a trend which is having a profound impact on the society in which we live, where there will be citizens with full rights, and “rent-a-workers” with few or none. Is this the kind of society we want to build? Run time: 52 minutes *Following the film, join us for a special conversation with the Diocese of Hamilton’s Sarah Guinta (Coordinator, Office of Justice and Peace) and Fr. Ciallella (Pastor, Blessed Sacrament, Burford).
