Ending Long-Term Water Advisories

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Last week the Trudeau government announced it will not meet its key deadline to lift all drinking-water advisories in First Nations communities across Canada by March 2021. In Ontario, Neskantaga First Nation has not had clean water for 25 years, making it the longest standing boil-water advisory in the country. The Agenda discusses promises made and not kept, the effects of that, the efforts to get clean water to these remote communities, and permanent solutions.
