This week the federal government dropped its case against a group of immigrant workers in the Fraser Valley, thanks in part to Go Public, says their lawyer. Over a year ago, we reported that the government had spent millions of taxpayer dollars pursuing these low-paid farmworkers for their employment insurance claims.
"We think that the Go Public story played a big role in this victory, and really appreciate the work you and Kathy put into it."
