A family that's been fighting the town of St-Lazare will have to move the mobile home they've been living in for the past three years.
The Supreme Court of Canada decided not to hear their case, meaning they have until the end of next month to find new accomodations.
The family has been living in a mobile home on their property since a fire destroyed their home three years ago, much to the displeasure of the town of St-Lazare.
With the Supreme Court's decision not to hear their case, the family has to leave by June 30.
St-Lazare spokesman Steve Flanagan says the town will take all necessary measures to ensure they do.
"We hope this story has a happy ending but if he doesn't move the mobile home, we'll move it," said St-Lazare spokesman Steve Flanagan.
The Bassendens claim they don't have the money to move. But Flanagan said they still own the property--and that if they sold it they would have the money to move.
Bassenden's insurance company paid off his mortgage but not the cost of rebuilding his house.
They allege he was operating an illegal car repair business in his garage.
