ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS!!!! Our community is small enough to know who needs a home or not. Every year what makes you think someone who applied in 2022 isn’t going to be in the same situation they were in the last 5 years!! Common Paqtnkek Mi'kmaw Nation do better!! I personally can name a few people in need I’m sure we all could lol!
