There’s no shortage of housing stories here in Labrador. Some people on the North Coast deal with substandard buildings….. while others in Central or in Labrador West struggle to find an affordable place to live. On the South coast the situation can be just as tough. Sometimes though…. it works out in the end. Rod Pardy lives in Cartwright. He has no family in the town…. and had put in for seniors housing…. but didn’t seem to be getting anywhere. In the meantime…. he was forced to find makeshift accomodations. With occasional snow already falling…. and frost on many nights…. his situation didn’t look good come winter. Here he is telling his story to CBC reporter Matt McCann.
