Rooster Town was a Metis community in South Winnipeg, and families had lived in the
Grant Park area since 1901. In the 1950's, the last residents were evicted from their
homes by the City of Winnipeg, to allow for the building of the Grant Park Shopping
Centre. Dr. Peters has studied the community and challenges the myths and distortions
created by news reports of that time.
