THE FORGOTTEN MINERS

This man is dying—silently, stoically, as have more than 100 other miners in the small Newfoundland town of St. Lawrence. Most die from cancer, mysteriously contracted underground. Almost an entire generation of miners has been wiped out. Their widows and children live on next to nothing.

REMEMBER ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAID EXPO WOULD NEVER BE READY IN TIME? NOW MEET THE MAN WHO MADE LIARS OUT OF THEM

IT's JULY 31, 1965, and one of the islands where Expo will stand is just taking shape. The trucking contractors are doing their damnedest to get that fill hauled down to the riverfront and dumped into the cofferdam. But a little mob of wildcat strikers are doing their damnedest to stop them.
