Remembering William Davis - Davis Day (June 9/17)

This Sunday, June 11, WCB Nova Scotia will join community members in Glace Bay, NS to lay a wreath in honour of Davis Day.  

Every year, we pause on Davis Day to recognize the life of William Davis, a miner who was shot and killed during the General Strike of 1925. In his memory, we renew our commitment to bettering the workplaces and the lives of our province’s miners.
