Critics are calling for a review of Canada's temporary foreign worker program, after two Chinese workers died when a roof collapsed in northern Alberta.
"I heard a big snap, and that was the cable," witness Brett Taylor, a boilmaker apprentice, told CTV Edmonton.
"I looked over and could see the whole entire things just twist and the roof pulled out and slammed right down on top of everybody."
The accident happened on an oilsands construction site about 70 kilometres north of Fort McMurray.
The workers were building a large oil container as part of Canadian Natural Resources Ltd.'s $10.8-billion Horizon project.
The company has since confirmed the two killed workers were Chinese employees, and four others injured in the same incident were also from China. "
