Memorial Ceremony 2023 to Honour Farmworkers

Kerry Hall No Comment


On March 7, 2007 Amarjit Kaur Bal, Sukhvinder Kaur Punia, and Sarabjit Kaur Sidhu were killed while being transported to their worksite as farmworkers in an overloaded passenger van alongside 11 fellow workers. An annual ceremony will be held this Sunday, March 5, 2023 at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium. The ceremony, attended by the families of the three workers, will honour their lives, and the lives and labour of all farmworkers in recognition of their ongoing efforts for dignity and safety at work.

The event program will end with a moment of silence and a candlelit procession to the Golden Tree memorial. All are welcome to attend.
