The mine could be dangerous place to work, and the hours long and arduous. Safety and pay were always an issue. Join us as we kick off the Canmore Heritage Festival with a traditional Ukrainian supper. Learn about the history of the United Miner Workers of America and Local 1387, as well as the story of the internment of Ukrainian-Canadians in the Bow Valley during the First World War. The evening will finish with entertainment with Ukrainian-Canadian vocalist Stephania Romaniuk.
