Cape Breton Island, now recognized for its natural landscapes and golf resorts, was once the industrial Heartland of Atlantic Canada. By 2000, its coal and steel industries shut down resulting in a host of social and economic difficulties for the region.
Listen as Dr. Lachlan MacKinnon, Assistant Professor of History and Tier II Canada Research Chair in Post-Industrial Communities at Cape Breton University, explains why preserving the history of Cape Breton's economic decline could help create a better future for postindustrial communities in Nova Scotia, Canada and beyond.
