All rooming houses have become more common as affordable housing options. At times, they've been unsafe. Here's ctv's ryan macdonald. >> Jacqueline mercer still remembers when tragedy struck just down the street from her sydney home. >> There's too many, too many crammed in, not enough space in december, 2022, a 33 year-old cape breton university student from india died in a fire at this duplex. He was renting with 7 others. >> Now mercer, who currently has 3 international students living in her home, is welcoming a new by-law that same to preventing this kind of thing from happening again. I think it's a good idea if they follow through with this. >> Like if they do do the inspections, if there is someone that's going to so it'll be a complaint enforcement. The cape breton regional municipality is new licensing by-law for shared dwellings or rooming houses means landlords will have to be licensed by august. 20th. >> The application fee starts at $200 and has to be renewed on a yearly basis. The municipality says the message is clear that overcrowded and unsafe living conditions won't be tolerated. People living in spaces that aren't bedrooms, whether that the hallways or closets. >> I'm also seen not building codes not being followed. >> The municipality says there will be a grace period until august 20th to give landlords a chance to get licensed and up to speed on the new by-law. From then on, they say they'll started forcing us. >> But if there's and not compliance them finds will be enforced. The cbrm says in most cases, complaints would likely come from neighbours or from tenants themselves. >> Sometimes what happens when the students come there may be for people say, you know, renting the place, but then they have a friend that doesn't have anywhere to go. So then they're taking in their own people. >> Cbrm says the new by-law will require ongoing yearly inspections of properties for which shared while the licenses are approved. Ryan macdonald, ctv news city. >> The tent encampment that was a victoria park in downtown halifax for the winter has moved to a few meters away. But some of the same issues have gone with it. Ctv's hafsa

arif explains. >> Rows of tents lined this median in the past month. This encampment on university avenue in halifax has grown and so has its upkeep, especially when it comes to food donations. Community seems to be really good with dropping but sometimes they leave it on benches. Samantha nickerson and trent smith have been living here for 2 months. They normally don't leave the area and rely on food donations. It's beneficial for most of us because that means that we have something. We're not going to or 3 days without having to get something to eat. But recently people have been dropping off food and leaving it out all day. It's last thing we want. It is, is the rats and other rodents around because. >> Dan, the by-law will shut us down. And then we have nowhere to go. This has happened before. It's one of the reasons the city closed the victoria park encampment. You find people who will tell you that there. >> Toes were bitten by rats at night or they wake up and find rats in their tents. >> And their belongings and items were chewed on the city suggests people who want to help to ask those living in encampments what their needs are, they don't have anywhere to store it. >> Or to heat it. And so it ends up maybe somebody eat one to that. >> And then the rest because toss to sign exterminators have been called to this encampment a few times already. Now. >> But the city says it isn't considered a public health concern as of yet, the people living here hope that it stays that way. Hafsa arif ctv news, halifax. >> Time for a quick break.

So humidity levels are going to be falling for that province on friday, falling friday night into saturday for both prince, separate island and for nova scotia. So for those who found a level of mugginess may be a little bit too high for them this week. There's going to be some less humid air moving in temperatures for tonight.

And despite the fact that we have some drier air arriving on friday, temperatures are still plenty warm for most of the maritimes, mostly 20 to 24 north and areas of new brunswick with some mid to high 20's in central southern parts of the province of closer 22 around the bay of fundy coastline.

It warms up most high temperatures between 20 and 24 mid to high 20's for eastern areas. Mainland nova scotia except 14 to 18 degrees. Again on the atlantic coastline, coastal areas around the minus basin and enron central areas of nova scotia. High temperatures, 14 to 19 degrees, but inland lot of those highs will be coming up closer to a range of 24 to 26 the annapolis valley with high temperatures near 27 for tomorrow. And for communities on the south shore in the southwest of nova scotia, mostly 20 to 24 the interior again close to 26 degrees in the 7 day outlook for new brunswick on saturday, a mix of sun and cloud temperatures should be comfortable. So should humidity levels. It's a low chance of showers on sunday, but a 30% chance increasing cloudiness on monday after that rain possible on tuesday of next week.
