Problems that caused Khaira incident still exist in forestry sector

An article in The Tyee today follows up on the story of 57 tree planters employed by Khaira Enterprises.

The scandal, exposed last year, of tree planters working in unsafe and exploitative conditions, was the subject of a July report by Roger Harris, the BC Forest Safety Ombudsman. Tom Sandborn's investigation reveals that little, if anything, has changed since the scandal broke, and implementation of some of the suggestions in the BC Forest Safety Ombudsman's report is now taking place, while some issues remain unchanged.
