Canadian miner that hired hundreds of Chinese to disclose failed applicants' resumes

HD Mining, the company at the centre of a court battle over Chinese workers at a coal mine in British Columbia, Canada, will release résumés of Canadians who applied for, but didn’t get, jobs at the project.

The move comes a day after a Federal Court judge ordered Ottawa to tighten its grip on HD Mining, forcing it to hand over the requested documents, CBC reports.

A federal court judge in December ordered federal Human Resources Minister Diane Finley to produce the documents as part of a court case relating to the foreign workers.

However HD Mining repeatedly refused to give them, saying the government had no legal grounds to ask for them.

The company has said it was not able to hire qualified Canadians for the positions, an argument local unions are disputing in court.
