    Ottawa rules out amnesty for 200,000 illegal workers - By MARINA JIM√ČNEZ, Globe and Mail,¬†Canada
    Andy Manahan, of Universal Workers Union Local 183, said he hopes Ottawa will not move to deport about 20,000 undocumented workers in Toronto, many of whom are keeping the construction sector afloat. Another 20,000 work as house cleaners and cooks in the GTA, while a recent report estimated the total of illegal workers in Canada at 200,000 to 500,000.

    'We need these people and they cannot qualify under the current immigration system, which favours white-collar workers,' Mr. Manahan said. 'The best solution would be if the government reformed the points system to encourage skilled tradespeople to apply.'
