And actually it is not that unusual for Bangladesh. Poorly constructed buildings - overcrowded sweat factories - ignoring safety warnings. It did not get a thread because it has become a familiar story and there is no need to discuss why it happened and who did it. We already know when we see the first report.
Which newspaper? Canadian newspaper?

It is not usual for 400+ people do die in one accident even in Bangladesh

People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.
