Farmers in distress, breaking the taboos

Many are the small farmers who suffer from extreme stress and depression. A distress that they often prefer to keep to themselves but that can lead to suicide. Ginette Marceau breaks the taboo by giving them an opportunity to speak out. Should production methods change so that farmers are happier?

Guests: Jacques Bourgeois, former director of the Swiss Farmer's Union; Catherine Mercier, journalist with Radio-Canada who presents "La Semaine Verte".

Presented by: Dominique Laresche.
