Monuments in honor of the province’s annual Workers’ Day of Mourning on April 28th are featured in a short YouTube video and in a new bilingual brochure prepared by the New Brunswick Labour History Project, a Community University Research Alliance led by researchers at the University of New Brunswick and the Université de Moncton.
The April date has been marked in the province since the 1980s and was given official recognition in the Workers Mourning Day Act in 2000. The one-minute video is entitled "Day of Mourning April 28 avril Jour de deuil" and includes photographs of the monuments and the original dedication ceremonies . The video can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLjsZqa62gQ.
Entitled A Guide to Day of Mourning Monuments in New Brunswick, the brochure provides background information on the existing monuments in the province and a map showing their location. It was prepared in collaboration with the New Brunswick Federation of Labour (NBFL) and the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) and will be distributed through labour organizations, municipal councils and tourism sites.
Additional information on these and other “labour landmarks” in the province is available on the project website, www.lhtnb.ca
