First Nations displaced by storm share concerns with Scheer campaign GlobePolitics

Babies and seniors alike were crowded into a Winnipeg hotel lobby on Monday waiting for buses in what one woman described as a maddening series of events that have left people feeling like animals

By coincidence, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer’s campaign arrived at the hotel and some of the evacuees asked for a chance to express their concerns to the media.

“Give us our funds, and quit shuffling us around,” Missyabit said. “We’re not animals to be shuffled around like this. It’s frustrating.”

The Canadian Red Cross opened a warming shelter at the RBC Convention Centre in downtown Winnipeg over the weekend for up to 11 First Nations, which it said was necessary because of the potential number of evacuees as well as a lack of available hotel rooms.

Premier Brian Pallister declared a state of emergency early Sunday morning.

“The cities of Winnipeg and Brandon will also host a number of evacuees for several days.”

“People have been without heat and water for days, including babies and children. We need to get them help immediately,” Dumas said on Sunday.

The Scheer campaign said they were unaware the hotel was being used to host evacuees, and they had not asked for them to be moved.
