LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. - Until last Sunday, Jacques Audet was spending nights on a cot in Lac-Megantic's high school gym.
Now he's staying in a trailer home right behind it.
Audet is one of 187 still unable to return to their homes in Lac-Megantic, nearly two weeks after a train carrying crude oil derailed and flattened the heart of the Quebec town.
"The shower is good," Audet, a 59-year-old saw-mill worker, said with a smile as he stood outside his new sleeping quarters.
"I don't have that many needs. I'm used to living in a small place."
