More Northern Evacutations

Another weekend, and more evacuations from another northern community.

About a thousand people were removed from the Attiwapiskat First Nation due to flooding.

About 140 were airlifted to Fort Frances, while others ended up in northeastern Ontario and Quebec.

It's hoped the evacuees should be able to return home as early as today
as water levels begin to subside.
