A very touching portrait of Albert “Ginger” Goodwin, an early labour activist in British Columbia. His story is quite simply told through three letters to his mother. The last indicates that he intended to give himself up to the authorities after running away to escape conscription (this was during WW I). He was shot and killed by police in circumstances that remain controversial to this day.

    Thank you Mark for posting my video and for your nice introduction to it. I just want to mention that the letters/lyrics are fictitious and were written by me, as I have had several people who thought they were actual letters written by Ginger.
