...COULD BE VIEWED AS BORDERLINE TREASON!
Why Is There Always A Big Screen TV?
Three years ago, flooding forced hundreds of residents from their homes on Manitoba's Lake St. Martin First Nation reserve.
The reserve was condemned, dozens of houses slated for demolition, and many residents have been living in hotels ever since.
Ottawa paid nearly $2 million to destroy the homes. But CTV has learned that as many as 40 of the buildings were lifted from their foundations, moved elsewhere and sold for about $20,000 each.
In some cases, the sold homes still contained their former residents' belongings.
"That buyer told me he bought it from the Lake St. Martin chief," Beardy said. "He admitted he bought it from Lake St. Martin chief, but he wouldn't tell us how much and who pocketed the money."
