Project Description

You CAN Do It!

Life for fishermen, farmers and industrial workers in Nova Scotia in the 1920’s was bleak. The rise of unrestricted capitalism and laws that favoured property over people had marginalized them. You CAN Do It! tells the incredible story of The Antigonish Movement, and how a group of dedicated priests and nuns introduced the co-operative movement and transformed the lives of rural people throughout the Maritimes.
