Canada’s Waterless Communities

“Canada has the world’s second-largest supply of fresh water, but 94 First Nations communities have limited or no access to it. Nearly a quarter of the First Nations communities administered by Health Canada are currently without clean water. The alerts issued by the federal government range from “boil water advisories” going back more than 20 years to crippling “Do Not Consume” orders. The federal government opts to deliver rations of bottled water to First Nations rather than build treatment plants that would provide jobs and consistent water. ”
