Canada Vignettes: The Move

Top of page

After nearly a half-century of use, a Saskatchewan grain elevator is moved across the snow-covered prairie to a new home; from Greenstreet to Marshall, Saskatchewan (about 20 miles away) . The film follows the lifting and transporting of the nine-storey, 200-ton structure, and examines the feelings of the people as they witness the final passing of their town's one and only grain elevator.
