On March 07, 2007, three farm workers were killed and other workers were injured in the roll over of an overloaded van taking them to work. Sukhvinder Kaur Punia, Amarjit Kaur Bal and Sarabjit Kaur Sidhu died in the accident. Since this tragic incident, the Federation has worked with the families to highlight health and safety issues for farmworkers, including the installation of the Golden Tree Monument in memory of all farmworkers killed and injured on the job. Please join the BCFED and the families at the 2019 vigil:
