In Montreal several dozen people have been squatting in an empty lot to demand more social housing. The occupation was started by neighborhood residents who are demanding an end to condominium development in the city, and the construction of more government-subsidized social housing. The action comes as a municipal election campaign gets underway in the city. FSRN's Aaron Lakoff has the story.
