Iqaluit family of 6 lives in downtown tent


If you walked past it, you wouldn't look twice. Near downtown Iqaluit, right in front of a row of houses, is a tent draped in a blue tarp.

It's home to a family of six.

With nowhere else to go, Alison Nakoolak and her family have spent the past three months living there while waiting for public housing. Last night, temperatures in Iqaluit went down to -18 C; with windchill it felt like -30.
