This week in Canadian history, June 5, 1935: the “On to Ottawa Trek” starts. An estimated 1,500 out-of-work labourers from federal relief camps in remote parts of British Columbia peacefully commandeer a train and leave for Ottawa. Rampant unemployment and insufficient social programs are major problems for Canadians in the 1930s.
The original protesters will be joined by scores more as they make their way toward Ontario. When they reach Regina, the government will insist that the railways stop the train. Only eight Trekkers will go on to Ottawa for negotiations with Prime Minister R.B. Bennett.
