Photo by Scott Stanfield The gravesite of Ginger Goodwin was covered with flowers at Saturday’s vigil at the Cumberland Cemetery during Miners Memorial Weekend. The annual event commemorates fallen workers, labour history and contemporary labour issues. Albert “Ginger” Goodwin was one of the country’s first labour organizers. His murder, at the hands of a hired private policeman outside Cumberland, sparked Canada’s first general strike.
