Minister of Labour speaks about tragic crash
Ontario's Minister of Labour says investigators from her ministry are working with police to try and determine the circumstances surrounding the fatal crash in Hamstead that claimed the lives of 11 people.
"Our ministry has been in touch with 2 embassies" said Linda Jeffrey, saying officials believed both Peruvian and Jamaican nationals are among the dead..
The Deputy Consul from Peru is currently at the coroners building in Toronto attempting to identify those who lost their lives.
The job for the Ministry of Labour is to determine whether the accident qualifies as a workplace accident. Were workers off shift on their way home, or travelling between farms. That will be part of the ongoing investigation said Jeffrey.
