Here is a major Star article on the most recent Fiera Foods fatality.  This article shows the importance not just of this specific case, but also the immediate and powerful call by OFL for criminal charges. 

There is also a disturbing pattern to the fatalities:  two workers were killed by vehicles and two were killed while cleaning machines. The fifth death was a worker whose clothing got tangled up in machinery. All of these are classic preventable incidents. They seem to point towards a lack of effective workplace planning, practices, and culture. All of this made worse by the extensive use of vulnerable temporary workers.
