Water is essential. So essential, in fact, that access to clean water is considered a fundamental human right.
So, it is infuriating that in 2022 there are still countries in the world where access to safe drinking water is limited, especially when one of those countries is a G7 nation like Canada.
There are currently 27 First Nations communities facing long-term drinking water advisories in this country. These communities are being deprived of a basic human right.
This is an emergency. Canadian Indigenous communities need action to address this current injustice — they need clean water now.

It is time to hold our elected officials accountable by demanding meaningful action for First Nations people.
