Petitioning The political and cultural leaders Niagara

Build a memorial for those who died building the Welland Canal


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.
