This is an important story for all Canadians to follow, as well as people from any other western country that may be at risk of following the same route. Basically the government is allowing Chinese state owned companies to open mines that are staffed by entirely Chinese workers, and ship all their profit and all the resources straight back to China. In the future, the federal government wants to give these corporations control of the immigration system for "skilled workers" as well, allowing them to ship in unlimited slave labour and even give them citizenship.

Editor: B.C. mining jobs are being given to temporary foreign workers. In Tumbler Ridge, Chinese-owned HD Mining has received permission to import 200 temporary underground coal miners, for their Murray Creek mine.And thats just the first wave, as other Chinese mining companies want to import more than 2,000 miners to B.C.s North for copper, gold, coal, etc.

The fix is in, as 350 Canadians applied for these jobs at HD Mining and not one qualified. One of the qualifiers is that you have to speak Mandarin.

Jim Sinclair of the B.C. Federation of Labour revealed that HD Mining does not have to hire a Canadian worker for four and one-half years and that a temporary job can last 14 and one-half years. What government genius dreamed this up? Chinese-owned HD Mines makes profits with cheap imported labour to mine and ship our resources to China to make steel; the Chinese miners send their wages back home to China; China makes the steel with their jobs and sells the steel back to us.

The money is not recycling spinoffs in our economy but is mostly going to Chinas benefit. We are subsidizing them for the privilege of being their customer.

Christy Clark is on the radio telling us in millions of dollars worth of ads how wonderful her jobs program is, while you stand in the unemployment line, looking like a Dr. Seuss character. United Steel Workers tried real hard to find out who owned HD Mining, with the help of a Beijing University researcher, assisted by experts in China.

Huiyong Holdings BC Ltd. holds 55 per cent of HD Mining. But who owns Huiyong is a mystery, and it could be a Chinese state-owned shell company. Then 40 per cent of HD Mining is owned by Canadian Dehua, which is owned by Chinese state-owned corporations. Not surprisingly, Elections BC shows the BC Liberals received donations of $20,810 in 2011 and 2012 from Canadian Dehua International Mines Group Inc.

Surely Clark and her gang wouldnt sell us down the greasy mine shaft for such a paltry sum. There has to be more to it.

Our governments are misleading and selling us out in the dumbest way possible, and our MLAs and MPs owe us some big explanations.

What's going to happen when these Chinese nationals see what it's like being in a country who's idea of good living standards isn't a 5x5 dog cage and try to escape? Armed Chinese guards to gun them down? The threat of forced labor camps for their families back home?

They probably wont be allowed to leave the camp.

So is Toronto and every other major city in Canada...and none of them seem to know how to drive.

...the figures for China, India and the Philippines are likely much higher now, as we take in ~30k from each of those countries every year. The top ten list for 2010 is as follows;

Philippines 36,578
India 30,252
China 30,197
United Kingdom 9,499
United States 9,243

Christy Clark is on the radio telling us in millions of dollars worth of ads how wonderful her jobs program is, while you stand in the unemployment line, looking like a Dr. Seuss character. United Steel Workers tried real hard to find out who owned HD Mining, with the help of a Beijing University researcher, assisted by experts in China.

Huiyong Holdings BC Ltd. holds 55 per cent of HD Mining. But who owns Huiyong is a mystery, and it could be a Chinese state-owned shell company. Then 40 per cent of HD Mining is owned by Canadian Dehua, which is owned by Chinese state-owned corporations. Not surprisingly, Elections BC shows the BC Liberals received donations of $20,810 in 2011 and 2012 from Canadian Dehua International Mines Group Inc.

Surely Clark and her gang wouldnt sell us down the greasy mine shaft for such a paltry sum. There has to be more to it.

Our governments are misleading and selling us out in the dumbest way possible, and our MLAs and MPs owe us some big explanations.

This is an important story for all Canadians to follow, as well as people from any other western country that may be at risk of following the same route. Basically the government is allowing Chinese state owned companies to open mines that are staffed by entirely Chinese workers, and ship all their profit and all the resources straight back to China. In the future, the federal government wants to give these corporations control of the immigration system for "skilled workers" as well, allowing them to ship in unlimited slave labour and even give them citizenship.

Editor: B.C. mining jobs are being given to temporary foreign workers. In Tumbler Ridge, Chinese-owned HD Mining has received permission to import 200 temporary underground coal miners, for their Murray Creek mine.And thats just the first wave, as other Chinese mining companies want to import more than 2,000 miners to B.C.s North for copper, gold, coal, etc.

The fix is in, as 350 Canadians applied for these jobs at HD Mining and not one qualified. One of the qualifiers is that you have to speak Mandarin.

Jim Sinclair of the B.C. Federation of Labour revealed that HD Mining does not have to hire a Canadian worker for four and one-half years and that a temporary job can last 14 and one-half years. What government genius dreamed this up? Chinese-owned HD Mines makes profits with cheap imported labour to mine and ship our resources to China to make steel; the Chinese miners send their wages back home to China; China makes the steel with their jobs and sells the steel back to us.

Document reveals experience of Canadian mine applicants

Chinese-owned Tumbler Ridge operation received about 300 resumés

By Michael Smyth, The Province February 3, 2013

The Chinese company that wants to set up an underground coal mine near Tumbler Ridge said it tried - and failed - to find qualified Canadians to work in the mine.

But after the company was forced in court to produce about 300 resumés submitted by "unqualified" Canadian job applicants, critics are scoffing at the claim.

"There were obviously qualified Canadians who applied for these jobs, and they were simply rejected," Brian Cochrane of the Union of Operating Engineers told me Saturday.

"Qualified Canadians are being denied jobs developing Canada's own resources," Cochrane said.

"It's outrageous." HD Mining International received approval from the federal government to bring hundreds of Chinese coal miners to B.C., after Ottawa accepted the company's argument that no Canadians could do the work.

The Operating Engineers and another union, the Construction and Specialized Workers, challenged the company and the government in court.

Last month, the company turned over to the unions hundreds of resumés from rejected Canadian job applicants.

Now, in a document filed last week in federal court, the public is getting its first glimpse at the qualifications of Canadians who applied for jobs with the Chinese company.

"There were trained and certified underground miners who applied for these jobs," said Cochrane.

"Miners with over 30 years' experience. Former managers and supervisors with major mining operations. Heavy equipment operators. People with tonnes of experience and clear qualifications. Yet all of them were rejected or didn't even get interviews.

"It proves we were right all along."

HD Mining opposed the release of the resumés.

"We have a real concern for the privacy rights of the people who applied for jobs," the company's lawyer, Alex Stojicevic, said during the court battle last month.

The resumés are now sealed, but the court document provides a general description of the qualifications of the applicants without naming or identifying them.

One applicant - called "Applicant 4" in the document - "had 20 years of underground mining experience, including three years as an underground operations supervisor."

Applicant 7 "had six years experience as an underground miner, at least three of which were in an underground coal mine."

Applicant 9 "had 30-plus years of wide-ranging and extensive experience in all aspects of underground mining."

Applicant 10 "had completed an Underground Miner Hard Rock Common Core certificate and had been working as a skilled mine laborer."

Applicant 11 "had three years underground mining experience including experience installing ventilation."

Applicant 12 "had three years of under-ground coal mine experience, including operating various equipment as a helper on an underground utilities crew."

Applicant 13 "had three years of underground mining, construction, diamond drilling and production."

You can read the entire 10-page court document for yourself at theprovince.com.

Jody Shimkus, the vice-president of HD Mining, said the Canadian job applicants were rejected because they didn't have experience in "long-wall mining," in which coal is extracted in long slices deep underground.

"Since there are no other mines in Canada that use this new technology, it shouldn't be hard to understand why there are no experienced Canadian underground long-wall coalmine workers available," Shimkus said.

But Cochrane said the proposed Tumbler Ridge mine was not scheduled to go into full production for two years, plenty of time for the company to upgrade the skills of Canadians with previous underground mining experience.

"There were applicants with underground tunnelling experience, experience with boring machines and running underground conveyors.

"They would have needed truck drivers on the surface. There were Canadian applicants with experience as mine managers and supervisors.

"Now we know why the company didn't want these resumés released. It's absolutely absurd for them to say Canadians could not have filled these positions."

HD Mining announced last week it was sending home its first wave of 16 Chinese coal miners and delaying the arrival of other foreign workers, blaming the unions for the "cost and disruption" of their court action.

"We have been treated very unfairly by the unions," Shimkus said.

But Cochrane said it's not just about protecting union jobs.

"This is about making sure Canadians have first crack at these jobs," he said.

"I've had many people tell me, 'I'm not a trade unionist and I'm not a miner, but thank you for protecting Canadians.'"

This battle is far from over.

I have to wonder how many other Chinese "joint ventures" are in reality entirely staffed by Chinese around the world...

As "the 3rd world-ers" get stronger, "they'll" increasingly treat our people like "we've" treated theirs.

Of course, it gets all the more annoying when members of your own government act like the local mandarins and apparachiks who sold out their own people in the 3rd world on "our" behalf.

I'm using the quotations because ultimately the abusers who I am talking about are sociopathic bastards, who will treat anyone working for them as bad as they can get away with, regardless of who they are or wherever they are.

Applying "nationalism" into the argument ultimately misses the point.

Having said that "Social Contracts" used to mean something in the West.

Well the more I looked into it, the more this whole thing of bringing an entire mine's worth of temporary workers in from China, stinks to high heaven. The HD Mining official quoted in that last story (Jody Shimkus) was until very recently an Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources in BC. I suspect if one were to shake the HD Mining "tree" a little more, all manner of former civil servants would likely fall.
