The winner of a Northern Sentinel book prize competition said while she appreciated winning the book On the Line, a three-hundred-page account of B.C.’s storied labour history, she would rather donate it to Unifor Local 2301.
The winner, who chose to remain anonymous, won the book sponsored by Harbour Publishing. The book was reviewed by Northern Sentinel columnist Walter Thorne.
Unifor Local 2301 president Martin McIlwrath, who received the book on behalf of the union, expressed his gratitude to the winner.
The book, written by labour specialist Rod Mickleburgh and long-time labour columnist for the Vancouver Sun, Province and more recently the Globe and Mail, bravely tackles the job of documenting B.C.’s labour past.
