Havre-Saint-Pierre: Help Wanted
A new study released by Quebec's Public Health Institute examines the impact the Romaine power project has had on the community of Havre-Saint-Pierre, on the Lower North Shore. The study indicates an increase in wait times at the local emergency clinic, lack of affordable housing and a shortage of employees for local businesses and organizations.
Pascal-Simon Audet is the General Manager of the Coopérative de Solidarité d'aide à domicile de la Minganie, a non-profit organization in Havre-Saint-Pierre that offers housekeeping services and support to elderly people in the region. He says organizations like his can't compete with the high-paying jobs at La Romaine.
