Moment in time: May 15, 1919 -- Tens of thousands walk out in Winnipeg general strike
 
It started as a relatively small-scale conflict between the city's building trade and metal shop workers. But set against a backdrop of massive unemployment, inflation and tensions remaining from the 1917 Russian Revolution, it quickly exploded into a general strike. To protest the refusal by employers to negotiate with unionized workers, supporters put down their tools at 11 a.m. Within hours, almost 30,000 people walked off the job. Five weeks later, with Winnipeg crippled, support growing across Canada, and businessmen warning of a Bolshevik revolution, national police confronted protesters on Bloody Saturday. Two men were killed and 30 injured. Ten strike leaders were charged with sedition. The strike was broken, but for decades, the union movement would draw inspiration from the dramatic battle workers waged in Winnipeg. -- Mark Hume
