April-28-138x150

April 28th is the National Day of Mourning in Canada. The Day honours the memory of workers who have been killed, injured or suffered an illness as a result of a work-related incident.

A recent Bulletin by the BCNU (B.C. Nurses Union) states …

In BC there were 175 fatalities in 2014, up from the 128 in 2013.  That is more than 3 people each week who lost their lives while doing their job.
