Memorial honours Welland Canal fallen workers
It was some time coming, but an 85 year old promise to honour the people who died building the Welland Canal has been fulfilled.
137 names emblazoned on the Welland Canal Fallen Workers Memorial stand as tribute to the people who died during construction of the waterway.
The memorial is located at 1932 Welland Canals Pkwy (at Lock 3) in St. Catharines.
The dedication comes as a result of years of research and fundraising.
The Department of Canadian Heritage, the Niagara Region, the City of St. Catharines, and donations from the marine industry, local businesses, and the labour community all helped to make this a reality.
Hundreds of people came from all over the world for the grand unveiling this weekend.
