City On Edge: a rebellious century of Vancouver protest, riots and strikes.

Vancouver Historical Society Event.

Membership to VHS is Required.

 

Speaker: Kate Bird, librarian

For more than a century, photojournalists at The Vancouver Sun and The Province have been on the scene to capture those times when the city stood up, took to the streets, and made some noise.

From the 1900 salmon fishermen’s strike to the 2017 women’s march, Vancouver has a long history of making its viewpoints heard, and in some cases, felt.
