Abstract

Two Chinese temporary workers were killed at work when the roof of a large oil storage tank collapsed on the work site. Four other were hurt during the accident. The investigation is going on and the Canadian company explains the Alberta's stricti safety rules and standards are always applied, no matter where the workers come form.

Although, Gil McGowan, president of Alberta Federation of Labour and Brian Mason, NDP Leader, have their doubts about the work environment for the foreign workers in the oilsands sector.
