25 join Geoff for a downtown exploration of labour history
About 25 Vancouverites joined Geoff Saturday, May 3 outside the Trade and Convention Centre for a walking tour of Vancouver’s hidden labour history. It was one of scores of such walks planned across North America as part of the Jane’s Walk events, organized in honour of Jane Jacobs, the woman who did more than almost anyone else to inspire progressive thinking on city planning.
Geoff’s two kilometre walk highlighted the many locations in the downtown core and the Downtown Eastside that have provided the backdrop for some critical events in our province’s history. A number of participants expressed interest in attending another such walk. If you’re one of them, contact Geoff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
