AHA MEDIA attended the On to Ottawa Trek 75 Anniversary Ceremony on Sunday June 6, 2010,   1 – 3 pm,
in Crab Park, Vancouver

June 2010 marks the 75 anniversary of the 1935 On to Ottawa Trek, when thousands of young men were inspired to climb atop boxcars and personally deliver their demand for “work and wages” to the source of the problem. It was a magnificent response to the harsh conditions endured by Canada’s depression era unemployed. These same conditions echo around us today.

Speakers included:

Libby Davies Vancouver East MP;
Jim Sinclair, BC Federation of Labour President;

Vancouver City Council representative;

Am Johal, Impact on Community Coalition;

Special guests and music;

Plaque Unveiling to commemorate the national historic significance of the On to Ottawa trek;

2010 Homelessness Trek to Ottawa send-off.;
