NL town suffers second major landslide

The first was last fall.

The second was this past weekend and it continues on Monday.

Odd that only last month, the provincial government stopped paying assistance to people thrown out of their homes by the last emergency. The province also refused any financial assistance to people who could not return to their homes because of safety concerns.

Lucky for them, their houses have now fallen into the ocean.

Jack Byrne, the provincial municipal affairs minister, is now talking about getting the feds to compensate the homeowners.
