Twelve residents of an aboriginal community northwest of Tofino, on Vancouver Island, have been told they've got until Monday to get treatment for drug and alcohol problems or get out of the community. John Frank, chief councillor of the Ahousaht First Nation, said the original deadline was last week, but more time was given so lawyers could clarify wording on the eviction letters.
