    Stricter rules urged over employment of foreign oilsands workers - CP, Edmonton Journal
    FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. -- An Alberta labour group is calling on the federal government to ensure Chinese workers don't take oilsands jobs away from Canadians.

    Paul Walzack, executive director of the Alberta Building Trades Council, said that Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. has employed 50 temporary workers from China, and are preparing to bring in up to 600 more.

    Walzack said the workers have been brought in for the company's Horizon project, an open-pit oilsands mining operation 70 kilometres north of Fort McMurray. Workforce requirements for the project are expected to balloon to almost 7,000 by 2007.
