June 1 was Injured Workers' Day rally at Queen's Park, organized by the Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups:

"On June 1 of every year, injured workers and labour activists gather outside the Legislature Assembly at Queen's Park in Toronto and in cities across the province to mark Injured Workers' Day. We rally on this day to celebrate the gains made through united action, raise current concerns--and remind governments we cannot be ignored."

See the speeches from this year's rally:

-Nancy Hutchison of the Ontario Federation of Labour

-Karl Crevar of the Ontario Network of Injured Workers' Groups

-John Clarke of the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty

-Jimmy Velgaki, former city worker who is on hunger strike
