April 28 marked a solemn day on the workplace calendar — the National Day of Mourning when ceremonies were held across the country to commemorate those killed or injured on the job.

In Ottawa, more than 500 Hydro Ottawa employees attended the unveiling of a memorial inscribed with the names of colleagues who died while at work. Hydro Ottawa, formed in 2000 through the amalgamation of five Ottawa-area utilities, has set up student scholarships in the names of employees killed.

The Gordon McNally Memorial Scholarship was presented to Steve Larocque, the son of a Hydro Ottawa employee.
