Charlène St-Ours has two kids, aged 3 and 7, a partner and a full-sized rottweiler named Hercule.
Ever since her home flooded out two months ago, the whole family has been living in an RV.
St-Ours says Rigaud residents are reaching a breaking point as they wait for officials to rule on their flooded homes.
She argues families are having to put their lives on hold.
“Everybody is real nice, but they just don’t move. They’re all waiting for something.”
Initially, St-Ours said she had planned to rebuild her home, but it’s taken more than five weeks for a building inspector to come and she’s lost hope.
The province also recently announced that homes in the 20-year flood plains with more than 50 per cent damage will be demolished, with no chance of rebuilding.
Jacques-Cartier MNA Geoffrey Kelley is encouraging residents to be patient.
St-Ours told Global News she and her family just purchased a new house, but she hopes the province will compensate her for the loss of her old home.
