I admit you tell the partial truth, but why do you think the terrible story is false? How long have you been here? How many cities did you live in Canada? How many times did you experience layoffs in Canada by youself? If your anwser is NEGTIVE, please don't comment on the story such a way. I lived here more than 6 years, and I know many people who live North America more than 10 years. I tell you that the story is exactly true, and it is not scare anyone.
The case happened 13 years ago, and the discrimination still existed against the new immigrants serioursly at that time, although limiting discrimination Act already announced in the early 80's.
The current situation of new immigrants get better right now, especially in some big cities, but you will find there is still discrimination in many companies when you experice layoff.
