Create water treatment plants to give Canadian native communities access to clean water.
This petition had 967 supporters
Right now, 150 native communities are under some level of boil water warning, meaning that their water is unsafe to drink, bathe in, or even clean with. This problem has created a lot of problems for the roughly 318,830 people who are living in these communities, as many of them get skin conditions such as infections and eczema. The government's plan to solve this problem is to ship bottled water into the towns. The problem with this is that the residents will then have ration water until the next truck, which could take weeks or even months to arrive. This petition is pushing for the construction of water treatment plants, connected to houses by water pipes, in regions near multiple communities. It may be expensive, but the Canadian government should look for the best and most permanent solution to help members of their own country, regardless of price. This plan will finally solve this longstanding problem once and for all, as they will finally reap the benefits of a human right, access to clean water. Please listen and sign, as this is a serious, but preventable problem.
