History

Arthur H. “Slim” Evans was born in Toronto in 1890. He was a labour activist best known for leading the On-to-Ottawa Trek from Vancouver in 1935. The Trek was intended to go to Ottawa to confront politicians about conditions in work camps and continued unemployment, but ended in Regina. He was also involved in several other labour activities, including a relief camp worker’s strike, the Princeton mine workers strike (which he was jailed for). He died in 1944 as a result of a car crash.
