Provide Clean Water for First Nations Across Canada

This petition had 14,661 supporters

I have worked in fly-in communities, Webequie, Marten Falls and Attawapiskat and at a local reserve Georgina Island. All have been affected by water issues. I consider the people I have come to know and love, family and my family of First Nations people is suffering. Damaged skin from chemicals in the water, mercury and lead poisoning, constantly having to boil their water or drink very expensive bottled water. There are communities that haven't had clean water for over 20 years. There is no good reason why this shouldn't be fixed immediately. I cannot live with good conscience in a privileged community, knowing that my friends up north are suffering.

The time to act is now. The time for change is now. The time to join together as a truly united country is now.

We as concerned and conscientious citizens of our proud nation, are asking the Prime Minister to work with all Canadians to bring clean water to First Nations across Canada.

Our First Nations people deserve the same rights and access to basic amenities and human rights as the rest of Canada.

The time to act is now! Please sign this petition.

Thank you,

Glenn Marais
