Fallen Worker and First World War Veteran, William Thibeau, 1918.

In commemoration of Remembrance Day, this episode honours the seventeen Fallen Workers of the Welland Canal who served in the First World War. These men survived the hardships and brutality of war but sadly succumbed to the dangers of the canal’s construction. Heroes in war, and in peace. We honour the sacrifices these men, and their families, made for their country.



This episode was produced using primary source material as well as the Fallen Workers series published in the St. Catharines Standard & Niagara Falls Reviews.
