    July 27, 1919
    Coal miner and labor leader Albert Ginger Goodwin is shot and killed by Canadian police. Although he had been ruled unfit for military service during World War I because he had lung disease, the conscription board reversed its decision just days after Goodwin led smelter workers on strike for the eight-hour day. Opposed to the war, Goodwin fled and for months avoided capture by the authorities. His death inspired Canada's first general strike on August 2 in Vancouver.
