Screening of Town of Widows documentary


Town of Widows, a documentary on the fight for recognition of occupational diseases suffered by former workers at Peterborough’s General Electric plant will be broadcast next Thursday (August 8) at 9 p.m. on CBC Docs POV.

Co-produced by Natasha Luckhardt and the CBC, the 45-minute program follows widows and former workers over the course of three years. Seeking justice from a workers’ compensation system they say is stacked against them, “unassuming citizens” are transformed into activists.
