Ottawa Sued Over Mould On First Nation Reserve

A recent judicial ruling, “certifying” a class action lawsuit is the first court ruling to address either the epidemic of mould on reserves across Canada, or the issue of who is responsible for providing adequate housing to First Nations, says the lawyer spearheading the case. It came despite a bid by Health Canada to exclude the opinions of one of its own scientists, who has said that some Long Lake First Nation homes were unfit for human habitation.
