Quebec man loses fight to keep home above gold mine

• CTV News
MONTREAL — A man who literally lives on a gold mine has been ordered by a Quebec judge to leave his home.

Ken Masse's childhood house is the last obstacle standing in the way of a multibillion-dollar mining project in the town of Malartic.

A Superior Court judge awarded Osisko Mining Corp. possession of Masse's home after the company requested an emergency court decision.

In a ruling presented Tuesday, Judge Robert Dufresne wrote that Masse's house is preventing key preparation work for the mining project from moving forward.

Masse had been scheduled to appear in court next month to fight a government expropriation order. He has been representing his mother, Mary Elizabeth Wilczynski, who owns the home.
