PERU / CANADA : After Lima Complains About 9 Dead Migrants, Ottawa Pays For Relatives Travel.


     Nine Peruvian migrant workers died during a horrific traffic accident in Hampstead, Ontario earlier this week...but after families complained about the delay in returning bodies to Peru for burial...Ottawa said it would pay for one family member to travel to Canada.
     Three more Peruvians were injured.
     A Nicaraguan migrant and the Canadian truck driver were killed...after the lorry crashed with the van carrying the migrants.
      The government announced that it will cover airfare and housing costs for one member from each family involved...for travel to Ontario.
