The Welland Canal is a critical economic and cultural corridor that played a critical role in shaping the Niagara region and the nation.  The government of Canada promised in 1932 to build a memorial to the 124 men who died during construction, but so far that promise has not been kept.  The men who died working on the construction of the canal deserved to be remembered for their sacrifice.

Letter to
The political and cultural leaders Niagara
Build a fitting memorial for the 124 men who died building the Welland Canal from 1914 to 1932. The government of Canada promised such a memorial in 1932, and we the undersigned want that promise fulfilled.
