Program Title: S3E1 - When work keeps families apart
Description: For many Canadians, especially in rural areas, long distance commuting for work, often in natural resources extraction industries, is a fact of life. The income those workers bring back to their hometowns often keeps those communities going, but there is a price to pay.The families of the long distance workers often pay that price. That’s what we are looking into in the first episode of Season 3 of Rural Routes.
