A special ceremony for the “National Day of Mourning” took place at noon today at Mountain View Cemetery. The day is set aside to honour those who lost their lives while on the job. Last year in Alberta alone, 162 people were killed due to workplace injuries or illnesses. The event was attended by representatives from the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees and other dignitaries, including Lethbridge MP, Rachael Harder and Lethbridge West MLA, Shannon Phillips.
