Mr. More talks about the history of early Hungarian settlers in the area, as well as his own family's history. He describes the situation of ethnic minorities in Ontario in the post-WWII period, and also the failure of the 1956 Hungarian refugees to adjust to farming. Mr. More also talks about the Ontario Tobacco Marketing Board and 'tobacco rights.' He provides information on the role of Communist party in the tobacco belt in 1930s and 1940s.
