Honouring the dead

Ministry of Forests firefighters, municipal firefighters, Forest Workers Society members, railroaders and City workers listen as Geoff Battersby, chairman of the Revelstoke Community Forest Corporation, talks about the impact of fatal and near-fatal accidents on the job during Thursday's National Day of Mourning. Cold, rainy conditions put something of a damper on the annual ceremony to honour those killed or injured on the job. David F. Rooney photo
