The memorial will be installed on the north-west corner of the waterfront path of the Vancouver Convention Centre (Jack Poole Plaza). This sits at the foot of the “Line of Work” installation that profiles workers killed and injured on the job. It faces Burrard Inlet, where for decades asbestos was loaded into ships for export. https://goo.gl/maps/r31vHC5zN9C29kRm6
