Day of Mourning - April 28, 2018

Posted on Friday April 13, 2018 at 10:06AM

 The Town of Elk Point Mayor and Council have proclaimed April 28, 2018 as "Day of Mourning" to come together and remember the workers who were killed, injured or disabled at work. 

In 2017, Alberta lost 166 men and women to workplace injury or illness. 

To remember them, WCB has developed a memorial poster (click here to view) in recognition of this day. This poster will also appear in our main entrance at the Town Office as a remembrance and a tribute to the workers killed or injured on the job, and a reminder that we need to work together to make workplaces safer.

Village of Elk Point Formed, 1938
In the words of J.C. Jensen "We have functioned barely a year and as the first Council we feel at this date, that justifiable pride can be taken in the solvency of the village finances, and in the local improvements that have been carried out. We do not claim infallibility but we have sincerely tried to provide the greatest good for the greatest number. We feel a pride in our village. We hope that it may grow more beautiful, become ever more conscious of the civic pride and truly be a community of which the younger growing generation can always look back to as a sphere of pleasant memories. Our aim is to foster the feeling beyond our confines, that we need them as well as their need of us."
