Mon, Jan 14: Imagine dealing with bugs that bite you in your sleep for years, and no matter how hard you try you can’t get rid of them. That’s the reality for residents of Caldwell terrace in Cote St. Luc. Global’s Elysia Bryan Baynes reports.

My additional notes:
The City has been involved in this matter since being called by a resident last year however its powers are somewhat limited. It has compelled the building owner to bring in exterminators which has been done, and by all accounts has improved the situation but has not eradicated it completely.
The main body mandated to deal with health issues is the CLSC and Montreal Public Health. The Regie du Logements is mandated to resolve tenant-building matters.
Although limited in its powers, the city will continue to offer assistance to the building for the benefit of its residents.
