The City Episode September 4, 2012

Labouring British Columbia

5:00pm - 5:59pm

On the program, The City speaks with historian, legal scholar, and Victoria City Councillor Ben Isitt about the rise of BC's labour movement from an urban perspective. We discuss the (radical) history of labour activism in Vancouver and Victoria, the issues facing unions and the working class today, as well as the challenge of bringing a progressive, working-class agenda to city hall.
