Volunteer of the Week: Orton Wade
Orton Wade was a labourer from Winnipeg, Manitoba. In 1932, he was arrested after speaking at May Day rally, likely under Section 98 of the Canadian Criminal Code. He was put on a train to Halifax to be deported, despite being born in Canada. Ultimately, he was not deported, but many others arrested that day were deported.
