Silas Tinashlu feels trapped.

He’s been a tenant in a public housing duplex in Hall Beach for nine years and for much of that time black mould has been an issue.

Mould can be found year round in the porch, around window sills, door frames and along the living room’s upper walls and ceiling, he said.

It complicates his asthma and it’s caused his girlfriend to break out in rashes. They live in the two-bedroom unit with their five children.

  1. the waiting list is so bad I wouldn’t mind getting a public housing unit in that condition. I would be thankful.
