#2 BLS - Housing Conditions

The community's traditional territory extends over 17,000 square kilometres, but the nomadic community of just under 500 was forced to settle on a 59-acre reserve. Today, the housing crisis has reached tragic proportions; most live in moldy, run-down homes and up to 18 people live in a single bungalow. For two years, the Quebec government has been sitting on recommendations to extend the reservation's boundaries.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
