City of Prince Rupert, Mayor Pond and Labour community marking National Day of Mourning today

Today is the National Day of Mourning for those killed or injured while on the job, with commemorations taking place across the province and the nation, including here in Prince Rupert.

The City of Prince Rupert made note of today's solemn occasion earlier today, sharing some background on the history of the now eight year annual commemoration.

Prince Rupert Mayor Herb Pond also had some commentary towards today's events, noting of the local National Day of Mourning Celebration to take place tonight at Pacific Mariners Memorial Park starting at 6PM

The Province has also observed of today's commemoration, with Premier David Eby and Harry Bains, Minister of Labour, releasing this statement of observance.

As we noted yesterday, Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Taylor Bachrach made note of today's event and highlighted the ongoing work towards safety for workers, reminding the House of Commons of the Ingenika tragedy of two years ago.
