Rate this:
In May 1919, 30,000 Winnipeg workers walked off the job and into the history books, launching the largest strike in Canadian history. It lasted six weeks and ended in the violence of Bloody Saturday, a day organized labour has never forgotten or forgiven. Was the strike a legitimate protest against low wages, poor working conditions and a lack of bragaining rights, or was it an attempt by immigrants to import "Bolshevism" and a new political order? Battle lines werr drawn over that questions the political leaders on all levels were quick to act. Bloody Saturday takes a contemporary look at the key moments of the 1919 Winnipeg general strike and how lives were lost and changed.
