‘Time for a Permanent Move (Kashechewan)’

“In his office upstairs from the auditorium, Mayor Alan Spacek says hosting ‘indigenous’ people from remote communities in their time of need has become part of Kapuskasing’s fabric.

“Each year, for example, the largely blue-collar town of about 8,300 takes in 500 evacuees escaping spring flooding from Kashechewan. They are expected to start arriving in the next week or so.

“While the arrivals are expected to stay for a short while — 60 days is considered short term — one evacuation ended up lasting three years

“Ottawa lays out the guidelines and foots the bill for dealing with the evacuees, but the town itself has set up a permanent team to co-ordinate the relocation and housing effort…

“The undertaking involves subcontracting various services — such as catering three meals a day in the auditorium, making sure people have transportation, enrolling children in schools where appropriate, and ensuring the arrivals have access to medical care in a town already chronically short of doctors.

“While the influx provides economic fuel for a town that relies heavily on forestry and mining, Baril says the situation puts strain on services and facilities. One of the biggest challenges is keeping evacuees productively occupied.

You can imagine that for 60 days in a hotel room, you get really, really bored and their anxiety levels climb”,
Baril says.
I would like to think we’re not making things worse for them.”

“At a storefront centre in the town’s core, evacuees co-ordinator Guylaine Ouellette keeps a flip chart with activities such as swimming, movies or bowling. In a storage room, she shows the new strollers and other purchased items that help make life a little easier for the displaced…

“Edwards misses home fiercely…

We’re ‘First Nations’. This is our land {?}. But ah…”
Edwards says, his voice trailing off…
