Ottawa Walking Tour: Protest, Strike and Rebellion
Wednesday, September 19 at 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM
In front of the National Gallery Spider

Whether you're new to the city or not, welcome the new school year and another year in Ottawa by taking a free walking tour of historical sites of protest, strike and rebellion in the capitol. 


Though less than 200 years old, Ottawa - Gatineau has a rich tradition of protest, strike and rebellion, dramatic events that shaped not only this region, but the very nature of Canada. Nineteenth century lumbermen, sawmill workers and canal builders worked in brutal conditions which they resisted with often amazing feats of organization. Throughout the twentieth century, Ottawa was a magnet for protestors whose campaigns and demands still shape our world today.
