In Plain Sight: A "Howdy" from Pleasantville, Nfld.

In this series, storytellers tell us the hidden histories of remarkable structures, landmarks and objects in Atlantic Canadian communities. This week, Rebecca Moyes tells us the tale of a St. John's neighbourhood that's shaped in the form of a western hat. She also gives us insight into when "newfie" started becoming an "n" word in Newfoundland & Labrador.
