Child labour, workers' comp and safety

An interesting day in the news. The trial of accused Alberta WCB hostage taker Patrick Clayton started this morning and Clayton plead guilty to multiple counts.

The Edmonton Journal published a short piece on child labour this morning. This piece has been appearing in a number of newspapers.
