    This documentary film by another writer/researcher/professor at St. Francis Xavier University, Dr. Corinne Cash explores the challenges and opportunities for economic community development in Cheticamp. The loss of the ground fishery, gypsum mining alongside the preservation of Acadian culture in theatre and music and the possibilities for Asset-Based Community Development. It does not mention the cultural heritage of the Cheticamp rug-hookers, which are a focus of Edward Langille’s The Story of Lillian Burke, and the importance of this cottage industry for economic community development in the Depression Years.
