CHANGES to the Federal Temporary Foreign Workers Programme in Canada are already starting to impact heavily on Barbadian grooms and others considered unskilled at horse racing tracks there.
 
A very reliable Barbadian source, who asked to remain anonymous, told WEEKEND SPORT that the effects have surfaced at Woodbine, Canada’s leading track, where scores of Bajans in various areas of the sport have been employed for more than 15 years.
 
“Yes, it is really hard because a lot of the guys here have kids and their families to support so
they will be affected,” said the source.
 
Please read the full story in today’s Weekend Nation, or in the eNATION edition.
