Mr. Speaker, some of these long-term boil water advisories have been in place for decades, which is absolutely unacceptable. That is why we made the commitment to lift all long-term boil water advisories on reserve by the spring of 2021. We are working extremely hard to reach that deadline. We have already eliminated well over 80 of those long-term boil water advisories and are working very hard on the next ones.
COVID challenges brought a bit of a delay, but that is why we are further accelerating our efforts and working extremely hard, not to meet some deadline, but to make sure that all Canadians have access to safe drinking water.
