CORRECTION: The original email to the listserv read that:

-80 migrant workers in BC may be deported due to unpaid taxes;
-In Montreal, 500 marchers protest Bill C484.

Corrections have been made above.

Also, the report said that “Revenue Canada reportedly froze the bank accounts of [the migrant workers’] employer, Baulex Projects Ltd, because the documents had not been filed.” It was actually because the taxes had not been remitted.
