The International Day of Mourning Workers Killed or Injured on the Job was marked in downtown Calgary on April 28, 2009 by marching with a faux coffin and wreaths from the Alberta Workers Compensation Board offices to the City of Calgary Workers' Memorial, which is located at Edwards Place Park, on the SW corner of City Hall. It was organized in part by the Calgary and District Labour Council.

This is one of the pictures I took at the "Save Kananaskis Rally" held on Memorial Drive, at the corner with the 10 Street NW by the Calgary Parks building. Protesters objected to the Government of Alberta's logging policy, particularly in terms of allowing clear cutting.

Breast Cancer Survivors Parade

Breast Cancer Survivors Parade
Marchers wore pink for the Breast Cancer Survivors Parade put on in and outside of Banker's Hall in downtown Calgary. Done partly as a fundraiser, but mainly to honor the fight by survivors against cancer, it featured a hundred or so survivors of the disease marching on Stephen Avenue Mall. The event was organized by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) and sponsored by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC).
