The Great Depression

“Once I built a railroad, made it run, made it race against time... Once I built a railroad, now it’s done... Brother can you spare a dime...”

That song exemplified one of the most tragic decades of the 20th century. The Great Depression stretched its strangle hold from one end of Canada to the other. This film recalls Canada in the 1930's through a blend of interviews and historic footage. It was a period of labour unrest and violence, massive unemployment, droughts and dust storms in the Prairies, relief camps, soup kitchens and ineffective politicians. Ten years later, when Canada slowly emerged from these lost years, an entirely different nation had been moulded. This was The Great Depression.
