In a personal firsthand account, a former migrant worker exposes the exploitative core of Canada's agricultural labor system. Initially hopeful about joining Canada's Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program, Gabriel Allahdua's optimism was shattered by grueling quotas and a climate of fear during his four years in an Ontario mega-greenhouse. This candid memoir offers a glimpse into the harsh realities faced by those driving Canada's food production. Now an influential figure in Canada's migrant justice movement, Allahdua actively advocates for the rights of temporary foreign laborers, using "Harvesting Freedom" to reveal not only Canada's historical ties to slavery and inequality connecting the Caribbean to the world but also the unwavering resilience of Caribbean individuals in their pursuit of freedom.
