April 27, 2018 –
On April 27, 2018 the District of Hudson’s Hope will host a Day of Mourning ceremony at 1000 HRS at the Workers Monument at the District Office at 9904 Dudley Dr.
Day of Mourning ceremonies have been held across the country ever since the Canadian Labour Congress initiated a national Day of Mourning ceremony on April 28, 1984. The national day of remembrance offers an opportunity for us to honour co-workers, friends, and family who’ve lost their lives to workplace injury and disease, and to collectively renew the commitment to create healthy and safe workplaces in our province.
The District wishes for you to say a prayer to commemorate the injured or deceased workers.
We invite you to join us in showing support for the Day of Mourning at our ceremony which will include speakers from:
The District of Hudson’s Hope,
BC Hydro, and
If you’d like to leave a note in honour of a fallen family member or worker, please visit the Day of Mourning website at dayofmourning.bc.ca, where you can also request complimentary Day of Mourning decals and posters.
