5 years on: Lake St. Martin evacuees 'devastated' and displaced

 


Five years after flood waters washed out Lake St Martin First Nation, the chief says it's frustrating more than 1,000 community members are still displaced from their homes.

The province diverted flood water bound for Winnipeg to the north in 2011. As a result, most of the First Nation was taken out by the water. And while the community is in the process of rebuilding, Chief Adrian Sinclair says the process has been slow and no community should have to endure this kind of hardship.
