Toronto: Muslim worker dies when hijab gets stuck in conveyor belt

via Food company where young female worker died fined $300,000 – Toronto – CBC News  h/t IOTW

A commercial bakery in Toronto where a 23-year-old employee died just over a year ago was fined $300,000 Thursday for violating the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Ontario labour ministry issues 6 orders against Toronto food company after young worker dies

Justice of the Peace Rhonda Roffey handed down the sentence in the Ontario Court of Justice in Toronto.

The fine comes after Fiera Foods Company pleaded guilty to failing to ensure that a worker near a source of entanglement had secured all loose clothing, as required by section 83(2) of the provincial Industrial Regulation. This violated section 25 (1)(c) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, according to a provincial government press release.

The incident occurred back on Sept. 2, 2016 at the Fiera Foods plant at 50 Marmora Street in Toronto. A 23-year-old female employee who had been sent to the facility by a temp agency and had only been on the job for three weeks was wearing a hijab that was loose at the ends.

The hijab became tangled under a guard covering the chain drive of a conveyer belt. An emergency stop button was not within reach, the news release said.

At the time, police said they arrived at the facility around 5 p.m. to find the worker without vital signs. She was pronounced dead in hospital.

A few days later, the province’s labour ministry issued six orders against the company, including a one stop-work order to provide an emergency stop control on the machine; a requirement for an engineering assessment of the conveyer line where the accident occurred; and a time-based order to provide safe access and egress to and from the work area where the accident occurred.

In Thursday’s sentencing, Roffey also imposed a 25-per-cent victim surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special government fund to assist victims of crime, the news release said.


If they didn’t allow the hijabi to work on the line they would have been sued and wrongly called Islamophobic. Now, rather than banning the hijab and other head coverings near this type of machinery, the government will further burden employers and fine them.

  1. thanks for the laugh good way to start monday am
    and if she wasnt wearnign her oppressive head gear she might be alive maybe if she wasnt a muslime she might be alive oh well one less for us to clean up

  2. The conveyor belt did not bow to the 7th Century Lifestyle known as Islam, why should anybody else. It is not the company’s fault the worker did not use any common sense around machinery. The Reality is that this girl, young lady, etc, DIED because of her choice to show her adherence to the 7th Century Lifestyle known as Islam.
    Everything you need to know about machinery and loose clothing is taught in every High School Shop class in The United States.
    Common sense is becoming an UnCommon thing.

  3. It is so sick. Trudeau wonders why government and companies should dictate people and women what to wear? Because of this kind of thing. Anyone who wants to wear an attire that is not acceptable to employers should sign a release form before starting to work that says ” work with your own attire, at your own risk”. In this case, this company will not go out of business. But a lot of times, companies will go out of business because of this kind of thing.

  4. A very short history lesson:
    In 732 AD the Muslim Army which was moving on Paris was defeated and
    turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
    …in 1571 AD the Muslim Army/ Navy was defeated by the Italians and
    Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe
    in the Battle of Lepanto.
    …in 1683 AD the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally
    defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies.

    In 1783 AD when the British Colonies that would become the United States of
    America gained independence from Great Britain, 5 Muslim countries of North
    Africa declared war on our newly independent nation, hijacking and
    kidnapping merchant sailors and selling them for ransom, or into slavery.
    When the United States of America was established, we were forced to pay
    extortion fees amounting to 20 – 25% of our federal budget to those Muslim
    countries to keep them from their hijacking and kidnapping. It took two
    administrations, Washington and Adams, to build a sufficient Navy so that
    President Jefferson, in 1805, could send the Navy and Marines to conquer
    Tripoli and end the piracy. Islam has been at war with the USA since our
    founding.
    If these battles had not been won we might be speaking Arabic and
    Christianity could be non – existent; Judaism certainly would be… And let
    us not forget that Hitler was an admirer of Islam and that the Mufti of
    Jerusalem was Hitler’s guest in Berlin and raised Bosnian Muslim SS
    Divisions: the 13th and 21st Waffen SS Divisions who killed Jews, Russians,
    Gypsies, and any other “subhumans”.
    This crap has been going on for 1,400 years and half of the
    politicians don’t even know it..!
    Reflecting
    A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine
    that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.
    Pause a moment, reflect back. These events are actual events from history.
    They really happened!!
    Do you remember? I remember All of These
    1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.
    2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by
    Muslim males.
    3. In 1972 a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where
    a fuse was lit on final approach, it was blown up shortly after landing by

    11. In 1993 , the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim

    the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers.
    Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
    14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim

    15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by—you
    guessed it—a Muslim male.

    killed, 264 injured by Muslim males.
    17. In 2014, thousands of Christian men, women, and children are

    No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to
    ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on
    killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile
    certain people.
    Absolutely No Profiling! Instead, they must conduct random searches of
    80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification,
    secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year
    old’s, Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former
    Governor Joe Foss, BUT leave Muslim Males alone lest airport security be
    guilty of profiling.
    Have the American people completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of
    Reason???
    Let’s send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and
    other stupid attorneys, along with Federal Justices that want to thwart
    common sense, feel ashamed of themselves — if they have any such sense.
    As the writer of the award winning story ‘Forrest Gump’ so aptly put it,
    “STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES”

  5. This was Allah’s punishment for leaving the home unaccompanied. Didn’t her imam tell her to sit at home, collect welfare, and call it jizyah from the infidels?

  6. $300,000 reward for getting killed because she wasn’t allowed to wear the appropriate clothing?
    How long will it be before the jihaddis start sending their wives out to work in a steel mill in the full Monte,anti-rape bin-bag?

  7. The citizens of Canada have chosen their government and allow their politicians to do what politicians (and other leaders in the media, academics and even religious) have done throughout the centuries – cater to islam and eventually allow moslems to enforce their sharia onto them. Maybe they should read the Pact of Umar before continuing on down the road to dhimmitude that they are going. Just toss their kids over to the moslems to foul up their futures.

  8. It’s tough to feel bad about this when I know how many innocent people have died at the hands of these barbarians. The ultimate irony would be if the tension on the machine was so tight and fast, it actually decapitated her! Now that would be poetic justice!
    So many Muslim scumbags, so little time!

  9. Prohibit hijab equals racism and bigotry. Stiff penalties and legal costs.
    Allow hijab equals reckless endangerment of employees. Stiff penalties and legal costs.
    When the Law is a Catch-22, there is no law.
    A generation ago you could not make this stuff up.
    Time to seriously look at what kids are being taught in primary and high schools.
    Except that it may already be too late.

  10. It wouldn’t have been a pretty ending, I’m sure. But I guess Allah is glad that while she was getting crushed in a conveyor belt, she managed to retain her modesty! Because despite giving her the hair on her head, he expects her to cover it all up, all the same – and to die before ever exposing that hair to the outside world.

    Better that she dies a horrific death, then shows other people what kind of hair she has on her head. Then again, Allah predetermines everyone’s path – so following that ‘logic’, she was predestined for this. So I suppose it was all very ‘Inshallah’ and I suppose she was all very phlegmatic and ‘Inshallah’ while she was being squeezed into the rollers.

    The mind boggles at the utter idiocy one must have, in order to swallow this kind of nonsense.

  11. Great choice !! Pay hundreds of thousands in fines for allowing her to wear a hijab OR equally large fine or even jail for asking her to remove it !. That’s the west today . ANY other religion breaking does and safety codes would be punished hard but islam is judged by a completely different set of rules.

  12. IT’S A TRAP: hired them at your own stupidity moment or the deal made with the government for some tax issue; Muslims demand that they wear hijab by choice mind you not about sharia law: Muslim fore goes work protection gear because the hijab has its own special protection.
    Muslim dies because of hijab failed in its special protection powers and her denial to wear protective gear, now the issue of the employer being sued/fined because Muslim failed to comply with work protective gear: Employers: never hire a Muslim for any reason, it will save your life, your business and the work place will be a happy place.

  13. In Saudi Arabia, they wouldn’t let the girls exit a school that was on fire, because they weren’t covered.
    The girls died.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
