Out of Boundary Creek

Boundary Creek 2.JPG

You would be hard-pressed to realize it nowadays, but Boundary Creek, a rural community near Moncton, used to be a base of operation for a resistance movement. It was led by a guerrila fighter who spread terror from Boston to Halifax during the the time leading up to the Deportation of the Acadians.

His name was Joseph Beausoleil Broussard, and he's one of the people featured in a new non-fiction book by historian Dianne Marshall. She talked to Jonna about her just-published book called "Heroes of the Acadian Resistance".
