Heron Gate mass eviction: ‘We never expected this in Canada’
Ottawa, Canada – Binto Mohamed hasn’t had a good night’s sleep since May. That’s when she received a letter telling her that her family of 10 had until September 30 to find a new home.
“There’s a piece of me missing, because of the stress,” she says, standing in the middle of her dimly-lit kitchen, the air thick and sticky in the overpowering August heat.
Mohamed, a mother of eight, knows her house is far from perfect.
The kitchen sink is about half full of dirty, brownish water; the drain hasn’t worked for the past year, and despite putting in a request to have it repaired five months ago, it’s still blocked.
I missed this story when it appeared in August. Funny that our MSM has not covered this diversity.
