Oct 3, 2022 - Abortion Access in Canada

When: October 3rd, 7pm

Oct 5, 2022 - Book launch: Harvesting Labour

When: Wednesday October 5th, 7pm
Where: Supermarket Bar and Variety, 268 Augusta Ave

Join TWHP to celebrate the publication of a great new book in Canadian working-class history by a former TWHP executive member.

In Harvesting Labour Edward Dunsworth examines the history of farm work in one of Canada's underrecognized but most important crop sectors - Ontario tobacco.
