On to Ottawa Trek
On the fiftieth anniversary of the Trek in 1985 there were numerous celebrations marking this great event in Canadian labour history.
Trekkers and supporters established the On to Ottawa Historical Society which has produced educational resources, including a slide show and the On to Ottawa videotape,
and makes presentations wherever an audience demands.
"One of the main lessons to be learned from our Trek," said Robert (Bobbie) Jackson, who crossed Canada several times in recent years for the Trekkers, "is that if progressive
reforms are to be achieved, the people concerned must engage in militant struggle in the workplace and in the community."
