On the Tobacco Road

Top of page

The tobacco fields around Delhi, Ontario, attract hordes of young pickers, many of whom come from Québec. This year, work is scarce. Rumour has it that foreign--and cheaper--migrant labour has been imported. The Québécois gather in the town's parks, waiting for jobs. The camera singles out a group of them, and shows their experiences at the hands of the law and a group of racist hoodlums.
