Natives Are Told Their Water Is Safe, But Aren't Allowed To See Test Results?
"Despite using Dr. Courteau's expert opinion to deny Attawapiskat First Nation's request for bottled water, Senior INAC officials refused to sign a letter assuring the community that the water was safe for human consumption last night at a public community meeting held in Attawapiskat First Nation. INAC also remained steadfast in their refusal to provide bottled water to the community.
The Chief of Attawapiskat delivered the report of the First Nations Engineering Services Ltd. on Attawapiskat's water portability to the Minister of Indian Affairs on September 15th. The INAC officials present at the community meeting stated they would not sign a letter confirming the safety of the water because they did not have a copy of the water reports and had not reviewed them. INAC relies on its counterpart, Health Canada, for such expert advice and opinion."
