Day of Mourning BBQ goes Friday afternoon

The City of Dawson Creek will host a barbecue for the Day of Mourning later this month.

Day of Mourning falls on Sunday, April 28, and was was initiated by the Canadian Labour Congress in 1984 to remember lost co-workers, friends, and family who lost their lives, were disabled or injured in the workplace and those afflicted with industrial disease.

“Sometimes a message is easy to hear but not appreciate the significance of how important it is for us to have our families go off to work and come home safely,” said Mayor Dale Bumstead. “We need to take this seriously.”

While the official day falls on the 28th, the City will host its barbecue a day early on Friday, April 26 at 12 pm at the Worker’s Memorial Sculpture outside City Hall.
