Myrie: Jamaican workers owed an apology

Leamington mayor dealt with a serious issue in the wrong way

When Mayor John Paterson of Leamington told reporters a few weeks ago that harassment carried out by Jamaican migrant workers was like a “cancer” in his community, it got a lot of people angry. And rightly so.

When I called to ask him why he would say such a thing, he told me he did not use the word “cancer” (the word was used in a direct quote from him at the police services board in several media), but admits that he was angry that Jamaican migrant workers are harassing the women in the town to the point that he had to take the issue to his local police board.
