Cape Breton

Former Nova Scotia fishing and coal-mining disaster zone, more recently a folk-group, step-dancing and fiddling resource, and a sinkhole for government pork barrel debris and half-assed UIC schemes that piss off more people than they employ. The region will likely devolve further into a resort for the few remaining lobsters, fur seals, permanently unemployed Newfoundlanders and other victims of the east coast fishery’s collapse.
