Day Of Mourning To Be Marked With Unveiling Of Monument

A monument in honour of workers killed or injured on the job will be unveiled in a ceremony later today at the Lily Lake Pavilion.

Today is the Day of Mourning, a day that honors workers who have been killed or seriously hurt while on the job. Flags will also be at half mast at municipal buildings around the city.

Mayor Ivan Court says the monument is a true piece of art.

The last city employee to be killed on the job was a city firefighter back in 2008.

The event gets underway at the Lily Lake Pavilion at 12pm.
