About

Preesnted by the St. Catharines Museum

On this episode of Museum Chat Live, your cohost Sara and special guest, Des, dig into the darker history that surrounds the canal crossings – the tragic accidents involved in bridge construction and maintenance, and other bridge disasters.

We turn our attention to this grim part of Welland Canal history in honour of the National Day of Mourning for Workers Killed or Injured in the Workplace held on April 28th.
