We certainly hope so. They are employers and they're responsible for their employees' safety. Millions were sent their way in support, certainly in our food sector, so I would expect employers who are bringing in workers—even those who didn't have access to government funds—to have the proper accommodations in terms of isolation and also in terms of their ongoing living conditions. I would expect them to pay attention to ensuring safety in the workplace, including things like social distancing, access to sanitizers, access to masks, folks being able to not work overtime and folks having access to medical support when required. I think all of those things should be the responsibility of the employer.
Once again, if we're not being consistent with inspections and if we're not showing up in the workplace without first announcing that inspectors are going to show up, these issues will continue to be exacerbated. It is the migrant workers who are getting the short stick. We've all watched what's happened in Alberta in the meat packing plant. We are very concerned about what's happening on our farms here in southern and southwestern Ontario.
Yes, it's the employer's responsibility, but it's also the government's responsibility to ensure that the inspections that are necessary are consistent and are happening, and that employers who are not following the rules are being penalized.
