Dozens of cottage owners in Renfrew County affected by flooding west of Ottawa are finding out they won't qualify for government flood relief money to repair their damaged properties. About 120 people packed the Horton Recreation Centre Monday night for the first public information session about the spring flood.

Of the 165 properties affected in Renfrew Country, officials said 69 homes are classified as cottages, and as such will not be eligible for flood relief money.
