First Nation says every home contaminated by mold

The Dakota Plains First Nation of Manitoba has filed suit against the Canadian government, saying every home on the reserve is contaminated by mold and other toxins.

The suit says the government knew about the problem but did nothing about it. The First Nation is seeking compensation or construction of new homes.

The band estimates it would cost $18 million (Canadian) to build new homes. Leaders prefer to relocate the entire community to an area not prone to flooding.
