Homeless Radio Covers Squatting in Montreal

In this radio special, our CKUT host goes out to the streets to record people experiencing homelessness telling their stories.

Squatters explain how they manage to get inside of buildings and some of the problems that lead them to leave certain places. They also discuss an incident involving the former mayor of Montreal, Pierre Bourque, in 2001.

The important question of squatter’s rights is also brought to the table. What do those rights (if any) look like in Quebec?
