EPISODE DESCRIPTION

A cottage owner awakes one morning to find part of her dream property surveyed, flagged and clearcut by a uranium prospecting company.

A strictly vegetarian restaurant is required to do thousands of dollars of renovations to bring it up to new meat handling standards.

A first nations tribe is requred to barricade their property to prevent industrial harvesting of their ancestral wild rice crops.

These battles are just a few of the startling, incomprehensible but almost completely unreported stories recounted in Thomas Pawlick's latest book “The War in the Country: How the fight to save Rural Life will shape our Future.”

Country life is not as quaint, cozy and idylic as it would first seem. It's a jungle out there.

To learn more about what the heck is going on on the front lines, Take 5 contributor Peter Stock reached Thomas Pawlick at his farm in Eastern Ontario.
