Canada: Immigrants being killed on the job

When Jayesh Prajapati, 44, a gas attendant at a west-end Shell station in Toronto, was killed on Saturday September 15, after he tried to stop a man attempting to drive away without paying his $112 bill, it was indicative of Ontario’s lax labour codes and lack of enforcement of existing codes, resulting often in immigrant workers being victimised, according to a couple of labour advocates. 

Prajapati was struck down and dragged by a vehicle. He was rushed to hospital, where he died shortly after.
