about

With all the passion and forward thrust of a terrific novel, TheCompany Store is John Mellor's winning story of Labour's Wars in CapeBreton Island. A much sought after book, it has been too long out ofprint, and it remains a good place for the general reader to start indigging into this essential story in the making of the character ofindustrial Cape Breton. The company store itself stands as a powerfulsymbol for the entire system against which the miners fought-a systemwherein the company owned the mines, the homes, the stores and ofteneven the ministers and priests-all with the goal of profits forshareholders and of keeping the workers indebted and in line.  Andwhen all these failed, the governments sent in the troops against theworkers!
