This first episode of CBC’s Land and Sea, broadcast on January 4, 2015 and entitled Come From Away, is tagged as “Sometimes it takes a ‘come from away’ to breathe new life into struggling rural communities.”

The Maritime communities this episode focuses on include: Little Sand, Prince Edward Island (PEI); Inverness, Cape Breton; and Guysborough Town.

This is an exemplary documentary of income security as a social determinant of health.   Watch also for exemplars of Environmental Sustainability, and Infrastructure.

What has your experience been of CFAs in Antigonish breathing new life into our rural community?  As a CFA myself, I have not noticed the wariness toward CFAs in the Antigonish community.  Could this be because so many CFAs are central to two of Antigonish’s main institutions — the university and the hospital?
