Ottawa faces outrage over Neskantaga First Nation’s water crisis Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared to walk back his government’s promise to end all water-boil advisories in First Nations communities by March 2021.
Pressed by reporters Friday, Trudeau wouldn’t commit to meeting the 2021 deadline and said the federal government was working to lift the remaining drinking water advisories “as soon as possible.”
After living with dirty water for decades, the Neskantaga First Nation in Ontario has had its contaminated water supply completely cut off because an oily substance was found in it.
Mike Le Couteur reports on Ottawa’s response to the crisis.
