Program Title: Episode 6: Roostertown
Description: Have you ever heard of Roost­er Town?

Most haven’t. It was a Win­nipeg neigh­bour­hood that was home to 250 Métis peo­ple between 1900 & 1960. That is until the city forced every­one out to make room for the build­ing of Grant Park Shop­ping Cen­tre and High School. Was it racism or urban devel­op­ment, and what were the con­se­quences? Prairie Design Lab takes an in-depth look.
