This Labour Day, Plan to Elect a New Government
Labour Day has a long and significant history in our country. And as people get ready to enjoy a day off with family or friends, it's import we don't lose sight of why we celebrate this day each year.
More than just a holiday, Labour Day is a reminder of the struggles and victories of working people across the country.
A quick history lesson reminds us that the first Labour Day in Canada is widely considered to be a mass demonstration that took place in Toronto in 1872, when the Toronto Printers Union took to the streets fighting for a nine-hour work day.
