Mr. Speaker, what is happening right now in the Neskantaga First Nation is an example, a representation, of the abject failure of the government and the previous Conservative government to address a basic question of access to drinking water. The people of this community are being evacuated. Seniors are being evacuated. Chief Moonias describes the situation like this. He says, “Why is this not a public health emergency? Are we not important? Are we not human?”
When will the community get access to clean drinking water?
