We will not forget Bonifacio Eugenio Romero.
Bonifacio was a 31 year old Mexican man working as a migrant agricultural worker in Canada. On Saturday May 30th, Bonifacio Eugenio Romero lost his life to COVID-19, 30 minutes after calling 9-1-1 from his motel where he was self-isolated.
May this tragedy serve as a constant reminder of how Canada has failed agricultural migrant workers, and a commitment, that we will not repeat the same mistake again. Our sincere hope is that the information and recommendations we have compiled will help to inform and spur action, and work to prevent future tragedies.
Bonifacio Eugenio Romero: you will always be present in our hearts.
