Families living in condemned HDC Laventille apartments

At least 10 families, including many senior citizens, continue to live in a condemned HDC development in Laventille.

Residents of the Marcano Quarry Apartments also known as ‘Canada’ are now saying their lives are at risk due to the condition of their homes and a lack of security on the compound.

In response to our questions Housing Minister Randall Mitchell admitted that the conditions at Canada Apartments are deplorable.

He said, "The issue, as I understand it, is that alternative accommodation is yet to be identified for the remaining 26 persons."

The minister also vows to give the matter greater attention.
