Still living in limbo after the Manitoba flood of 2011

Listen

Today we take a look at one province's attempt to get ahead of natural devastation led to controlled flooding, forced evacuations and now more than a year-and-a-half later ... whole neighbourhoods that still have nowhere to call home.



Still living in limbo after the Manitoba flood of 2011

A year-and-a-half ago, thousands of Manitobans were driven from their homes by a devastating spring flood. Since then, many of them have been able to go home. But some are still waiting ... shocked that things have taken this long and angry at the fact that they are still living in emergency conditions.

Our Manitoba producer Suzanne Dufresne has met with a number of those displaced people and she joined us from Winnipeg to tell us more.
