    Fired worker may have a new job - By RENATO GANDIA, Fort McMurray Today
    The case of a Quebecer dismissed from work in the oilsands may be headed for the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

    Negotiations to reinstate Carol Rioux and Marco Pelletier (who quit in protest) at Suncor Energy weren’t successful over the weekend and the two have been dispatched to another work site, said Jessica Bowering, lawyer for the Ironworkers Union Local 720, this morning.
    The human rights case will be filed, said Bowering. “Probably not today, but probably by Wednesday,” she said.

    Rioux was dismissed from Suncor after he failed to pass a second orientation test because of language problems. His friend Pelletier resigned following the dismissal.
