Description

The people of an Acadian fishing village in Cheticamp, Cape Breton, have evolved several co-ops as strategic economic building blocks for their community -- a fish processing plant, a restaurant and crafts store, a credit union, a youth employment co-op, and one of the most successful grocery stores in the Atlantic provinces. This video explores the sources of this record in the local leadership, in the cultural history, and in the traditions of this community.
