Catalyst Centre is pleased to announce that Kellie Scanlan and Denise Hampden will be hosting the second of three walking conversations on labour history in Toronto. Kellie has extensive labour, union and popular education experience. Denise brings years of equity work practice, with women, Aboriginal workers, and workers of colour.

The walk will retrace the steps of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, and the important history of struggle that helped shape the industrial and commercial city that Toronto is today. After this walk through history, we will have a chance to reflect at the Royal York hotel, a mainstay of both Toronto and railway history.

Bring your walking shoes and a friend or two!

Feel free to share widely!

This event is free!

Meet under the large clock in the Great Hall of Union Station at 6:30 pm.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
