Subject: [CPEO-MEF] GLOBAL: Former Canadian radar base, Sydney, Nova Scotia
Residents forced to move due to soil contamination

CBC News
May 27, 2009

Residents in 11 low-income rental homes on a former radar base in Sydney, N.S., are being forced to find another place to live due to soil contamination caused by buried oil tanks.

New Dawn Enterprises, a non-profit agency that owns the homes, told residents this week they have to leave in three months.

The tenants have been offered $1,500 to help with moving costs, a reimbursement of their final rent payment and assistance in finding another place to live.

The agency's decision to shut down the homes came after it received news from the Department of National Defence that it will begin to clean up the contamination.
