Province still waiting for disaster assistance from Ottawa years later

The province is still waiting for cheques from Ottawa for disaster assistance, dating back years.

EMO boss Andrew Lathem told the legislature’s public accounts committee that the Feds still owe the province money for floods in Meat Cove in 2010 and Truro in 2014. Lathem says recouping disaster funds usually takes some time because Ottawa usually does several audits of claims to make sure they’re genuine.
