In 1935, thousands of unemployed men
hopped freight trains for Ottawa, demanding work,
wages and an end to relief camps.
"On To Ottawa” brings this historic event
to the video medium. It is based on the play
written by Tom Hawken. The video features
his band performing period songs and
trek participants Robert Jackson,
Jean Sheils and Ray Wainright.
