GlobalCitizen: Canada is one of the wealthiest and most water-rich countries in the world. Yet many of its First Nations communities continue to lack safe drinking water — a basic human right.
We've Given Them a Day
What More Could They Want?
From National News: Canada marks first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Truth: Whose truth?
Reconciliation: (dictionary meaning: the re-establishing of cordial relations). You can't re-establish what was never established.
KAMLOOPS, B.C. — Communities across Canada are set to mark the country's first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation today, honouring Indigenous survivors and children who disappeared from the residential school system.
GlobalCitizen: 61 Indigenous Communities in Canada Still Face Water Crisis
From Jody Wilson-Raybould's recently published book: "Indian" in the Cabinet - Pg. 92:
How the Government do talk! - "The Government of Canada is working with First Nations communities to achieve clean drinking water on reserves."
From Canada website: As of September 2021 --
Govt: First Nations control of services
Sounds good except for that word "gradually".
How the gummint do talk! A national monument won't bring clean water, of course, nor will it erase the evil of the residential schools.

Commenter: "Real nice of the government to give itself a paid holiday over what it did to the indigenous people."

From EcoWatch: This sign goes back to 1995 - as of 2017 (the date of the article) Canada still had no federal standards or binding regulations governing First Nations' drinking water.
