Unusual Sources continues our coverage of the poor conditions faced by Ontario's thousands of foreign migrant workers. A few days ago, migrant farm workers and their supporters began the long trek from Leamington to Ottawa to demand better working conditions and an end to the discrimination against migrant workers as part of the Harvesting Freedom Caravan.

Agricultural workers from Mexico and the Caribbean endure long hours, low pay, and long absences from their families.

Doug interviews Gabriel Alladua, one of the organizers, directly from the Harvesting Freedom Caravan as it passes through Chatham.
