Johan Lalonde, 62, lives with her daughter and three children in the Notre Dame de Grace district.

However, his daughter no longer had the means to accommodate it.

“I don’t know where I’m going to sleep tonight. I’ve looked everywhere for an apartment within my budget and can’t find it. It’s tough,” she said in an interview with TVA Nouvelles on Saturday.

Two weeks before Christmas, Mrs. Lalonde claims the homeowner put her out on the street. She was paying $710 a month for her one-bedroom unit. Since then, she has not had a stable address.

The lady also has a dog, which complicates her search.

“I’ve had a hip injury and my dog ​​helps me walk and calms me down,” she explains.

As of this evening, sleeping on the street was the only option that seemed possible to him.

“I’m so scared,” she said, with tears in her eyes.

After the interview, TVA Nouvelles referred Ms. Lalonde to emergency resources.
