Economic Warfare: Blood, Soil and Gravel


This is a prelude to a series of articles I intend to write on the subject of economic warfare against the people of Atlantic Canada.  These areas were settled in the 18th and 19th centuries by Irish, Scottish, English and German immigrants who were granted large parcels of land.  They and their descendants built communities in very isolated and absolutely breathtaking locations, living self-sufficiently by fishing, hunting and farming.  This way of life is being systematically destroyed by greed and short-sightedness.  I will be going more in depth to these subjects later on, but I wanted to share this one article about one family’s land being stolen right out from under them, to dig a gravel quarry.

  1. I remember hearing somewhere that about Nova Scotia’s involvement in the american revolutionary war, and I thought it was interesting. I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say about it.
