Please note that the screening of the film “Breathtaking” originally scheduled for June 1st has been postponed.

We felt that this event was too important to be left to compete with the Canucks hockey schedule. We are seeking a new date for this event, possibly June 16, 2011. Please stay tuned for confirmation of a new date and time.

As many of you know, we have been working hard to organize some events to recognize our first Injured Workers’ Day on June 1st in BC. The B.C. Federation of Labour will be sending a delegation to Victoria on May 31st to lobby on OHS and compensation issues, as well as to talk about the importance of recognizing Injured Workers’ Day in BC. In addition, we have planned the following event on the evening of June 1st (stay tuned for more activities).

Please find attached a copy of our notice for the screening of the Canadian documentary Breathtaking, directed by Kathleen Mullen.

This film is her personal journey into the asbestos industry in Canada, following the death of her father, Richard, from mesothelioma. The film will be followed by an expert resource panel, question and answer period.

  • DATE: June 1, 2011 – Injured Workers’ Day
  • TIME: 7:00 pm
  • PLACE: Fifth Avenue Cinemas, 2110 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC
