April 28 is a National Day of Mourning that commemorates workers who are killed or injured on the job each year, or who die from work-related diseases.  This day provides us the opportunity to remember these workers in public events.  However, the Day of Mourning is also a time to insist that all levels of government must take an active role in enforcing existing health and safety laws and by doing so, prosecute violations when a  worker is killed or seriously injured.
