Last Thursday, on the eve of the 1946 Stelco strike anniversary, members of USW Local 1005 marched to Woodlands Park to attend the launch of Ghost Landscape, where I was joined by speakers Alice Plug-Buist for the Barton BIA, GALA board member and Ward 3 candidate Laura Farr, USW 1005 president Ron Wells, and Steelworker poet Bill Mahoney.
With thanks to Cara Nickerson, Eva Salinas, Ron Wells, Jim McColl, Bill Mahoney, Alice Plug-Buist, Laura Farr, Jason Morse, Glen Marshall, Naomi Bower, Graham Carroll, and all the members of USW Local 1005.
