Residents back in condemned Alberta reserve homes

Three weeks ago more than 600 residents were told to leave the former Harvey Barracks after Health Canada issued an unfit for human habitation order. The building was run down and contained asbestos.

Band officials said families who lived in the complex would be relocated to Calgary apartments for at least a year while a permanent housing plan was developed.

At first the residents were told the building would be fixed, then were told the building would be torn down. Now an Indian and Northern Affairs spokesman has denied that a deal has been struck. Then The band's abrupt announcement followed an update they sent evacuees earlier in the week advising that asbestos repairs in the units were underway. Confused yet?

This is leading some residents to wonder if it is a temporary eviction. Black Bear Crossing is adjacent to reserve lands slated for a new casino expected to open next summer.

This is nothing new. You probably notice by now how the First Nations are being ignore. Anyone can see that?

Especially after what happened in Kashechewan, Attawapiskat, Pikagagum & Marten Falls of Ontario who have all declared state of emergencies?

Conservatives have no intention of helping these people!!!!

Well, I'll keep posting. It's the least I can do.
