On to Ottawa Trek anniversary commemorated

Today CRAB Park in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside is a rare patch of quiet waterfront greenspace.

75 years ago, it was the launching site of the famous Depression-era protest, the On to Ottawa Trek. Twelve hundred unemployed workers clambered on to boxcars to travel to Ottawa demanding “work and wages.” They made it to Regina, where attacks by police ended the rolling protest, though not the struggle. Many historians consider the Trek and the “Regina Riot” a turning point in the fight for social justice in Canada.

Working Design clients win Labour Media awards

Each year,  CALM (the Canadian Association of Labour Media) recognizes and celebrates Canadian union publications, ads and campaigns as well as websites in their annual awards. Working Design projects have consistently been winning  CALM prizes for almost 20 years.

This year’s kudos include “Best Overall Publication” for the Hospital Employees’ Union “Guardian”, a magazine that Working Design has been involved with since 1990 when we did the first of two overall redesigns.
