The Last Spike was struck in British Columbia on November 7, 1885, but how much do we know about the men and women from different nations who sacrificed their lives to maintain the Canadian corridor? March 4, 1910, marked one of the worst avalanches in Canadian history. On this evening at Rogers Pass, railway workers were digging avalanche debris from Mt. Cheops with shovels and locomotives. Around 11:30 pm, another avalanche came down from the opposite mountain killing 58 men. The fatality included 32 Japanese. Fujimura will share recent research about the Japanese involvement and information about the families of the victims.

Donations will be accepted at the event towards the Canadian Avalanche Center, Japanese Avalanche organizations, ski patrol in Whistler & Blackcomb, and Revelstoke Mountain Resort.
