Perhaps the most gutting thing about Attawapiskat’s suicide emergency is how unsurprising it is to those closest to the crisis.

PAPAYE, HAITI — The Rosier family was always close. Just not this close.
Twenty-five people – parents, grandparents, children, nephews, cousins and in-laws – have been living in the family patriarch’s farmhouse in Haiti’s Plateau Central for close to a month.
Standing outside, hacking his palm trees to pieces to build shacks for his growing household, patriarch Ilson Rosier smiles and shrugs.
“They’re family – of course I have to take them in. We’ll do what we can.”
But his seven children and their families now sharing cooking, washing and living space are starting to worry how they’ll make ends meet.
The Rosier brood is among the hundreds of thousands who have fled devastated Port-au-Prince to seek refuge in the provinces.
