Long road to justice : the Viola Desmond story (V2823)

This video examines the case of Viola Desmond, a successful entrepreneur who operated her own beauty parlour and college in Halifax, who was travelling from Halifax to Sydney in 1946 when car trouble stranded her for a few hours in New Glasgow. Attempting to pass the time, she bought a ticket to a movie but ran into trouble when she unknowingly sat in the whites-only section of the theatre. After refusing to move, Desmond was arrested, spent the night in jail and was tried and convicted of defrauding the Province of the one penny tax difference between a floor seat and a balcony seat. She chose to pay a fine of $26 rather than go to jail for 30 days but Desmond appealed the conviction twice, and the case was instrumental in bringing an end to segregation laws in the province. This video features both interviews and period re-enactments of Desmond's story.

Nova Scotia Mining

Mining in Nova Scotia has a long and storied history. For hundreds of years, opportunistic entrepreneurs have burrowed into the land, seeking gold, coal, lead, zinc - anything the marketplace would buy. It is a story of violence, cruelty and bravery. But in the 1980's mining faded from the province's economy as many of the mines were shut down. But now, with developing nations clamouring for all sorts of materials to fuel their booming economies, mining is once again on the rise. Old mines are re-opening and new projects are being developed. And this generation of mine operators says the business can be done in a way that doesn't hurt the environment or exploit its workers.

Nova Scotia Wine

When you think of Nova Scotian delicacies you may think of seafood first. But what about a touch of the local grape to go with that fish dinner? That may sound unusual but it turns out that the soil, the climate, and the ocean breezes have all contributed to a growing wine industry in the province. A lot has happened since the Jost family of Malagash produced their first wine twenty five years ago. Today there are 10 wineries with more on the way. The winemakers have a dream. They want to transform their Nova Scotia vineyards into wine country... an east coast Napa Valley or Niagara. (Original Air Date: June 14, 2009)
