Farmer gives emotional statement about temporary foreign workers

View on: FacebookTwitter | LinkedIn | YouTube

Philippe Quinn, a farmer from Quebec, talks with emotion about the Guatemalans who work for him − especially Jose. It’s an amazing, heart-warming story full of generosity and love. We don’t talk enough about the impact of these relationships at a human level. Both sides learn so much from each other, and the compassion, respect and admiration forged over months and years of working together remains long after the season is over and we’ve said our goodbyes.
