WINNIPEG 1919:

Museum answers critics with exhibit on bloody 1919 strike
The Canadian Museum of Civilization, criticized for ignoring some of Canada's unpleasant historic events, has opened an exhibit dealing with one of the ugliest confrontations in the country's history. With the help of $50,000 from the Canadian Labour Congress, the museum launched two "social progress" exhibits yesterday -- a recreation of Meeting Room No. 10, used by unions during the bloody Winnipeg general strike of 1919, and a companion Web site devoted to Canadian labour history.
