Frank Rogers – Labor activist and martyr

A Working Man’s Dream

I write about Frank Rogers, a BC labour martyr, in BC History magazine (Vol. 36, No.2). In 2003, one hundred years after he died, I was part of a labour-organized memorial at Vancouver’s Mountainview Cemetery. The article is posted at the cemetery website:

Also, check out Stephen Hume’s story in the Vancouver Sun, September 1, 2012, “A deadly fight for labour rights” on the turbulent history of the BC labour movement, including the Frank Rogers story.
