Of Pork and Potatoes
Of Pork and Potatoes is a remarkable story of perseverance in the face of adversity. Bill Massey recounts his childhood growing up in a troubled home in rural Manitoba. By finding the people who gave him space to move forward, committing to hard work, upholding his integrity, and above all, never giving up, he managed to survive and use his skills to help others, becoming a teacher, principal, and advocate for disadvantaged children.
When an illegal hog farm operation started affecting Bill Massey’s community, it was not a big step to move from teaching and advocating for children to dealing with the injustices he saw in his community. The Planning Act of Manitoba has made it virtually impossible for rural people to protect their rights and the well being of their communities from unscrupulous corporations.
With fifteen years of fighting under their belt, Bill Massey and his community continue to pursue their rights and protect the environment from the forces threatening their way of life. Of Pork and Potatoes will empower and inspire anyone looking for true stories about people who confront the odds with courage and determination and pursue justice with integrity.
