1919 Winnipeg general strike memorial to tell entire story
from Journal of Commerce
The winning submission of a design competition to commemorate the Winnipeg general strike of 1919 incorporates both sides of the violent event which crippled much of the city's services for 40 days and reverberated throughout the North American labour community, says its designer. "We want to avoid an ideological slant," says Tom Monteyne, owner of Monteyne Architecture Works. His firm's winning submission was selected over 13 others by the City of Winnipeg. It is a 40-foot wide by about 25-foot high "billboard" comprised of weathered steel supported on iron columns forming the numbers 1919.
