Mayor, Councillors Lay Wreaths To Mark Davis Day
Mayor Cecil Clarke and some Regional Councillors laid wreaths in former coal mining communities this morning to mark Davis Day.
Annual Davis Day events to remember miners killed on the job aren’t happening as usual this year because of COVID-19.
People are being asked to take a moment to reflect today with no commemorations taking place.
Meanwhile, Cape Breton Miners Museum executive director Mary Pat Mombourquette is encouraging people to visit the Glace Bay venue today to mark Davis Day in their own way.
On June 11, 1925, William Davis was fatally shot by police during a miners strike near New Waterford.
