Verigin's Tomb

Verigin's Tomb
Peter Verigin led the Doukhobors from Tsarist Russia to the Canada at the end of the 19th century. In later years, conflicts with the radical Sons of Freedom faction turned violent. Verigin was killed in the bombing of CPR train in BC in 1924.

The tomb is a peaceful and beautifully gardened spot. I like to stop an pay my respects whenever I pass near.
