Chinese miners sent home in B.C. workers dispute

The company that brought miners from China to work on a B.C. coal project says it is sending some of the workers back home and is not bringing any more to Canada for the time being due to court delays.

Two unions are challenging the government’s decision to allow HD Mining to bring about 200 Chinese miners to work in northern B.C., rather than hire Canadians.

HD Mining announced in a release Monday that its 16 temporary foreign workers on the Murray River project are returning to China.
