CHSLD worker awaits deportation

A man who put himself at risk working as a cleaner in CHSLDs at the worst of the first wave of Covid is now locked up in a detention centre and facing deportation. Mamadou Konate is receiving some popular support, but the rules say only nurses and orderlies qualify for fast-track status.

(Incidentally, it’s not much use googling for “Mamadou Konate” to find out more. Seems his name is a West African equivalent of Pierre Tremblay or John Smith.)
