More Jamaicans off to Canada of part of work programme

Posted: April 24, 2012


Another group of Jamaicans will leave the island tomorrow (April 25) to participate in the Canadian Farm Work Programme.


The 193 workers will be involved in the reaping of fruits, vegetables, tobacco and the production and development of greenhouses.


Most of the workers are returning to the programme.


2,813 workers have gone on the Canadian Programme since January.


Labour Minister Derrick Kellier has urged the workers to perform well, as this will benefit other Jamaicans, seeking to be part of the farm work programme.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
