Algoma Manitoulin MPP Mike Mantha went after the Liberals over the lack of clean drinking water on many Ontario First Nations. He says this should not be happening in a province as wealthy as Ontario. Mantha says some First Nations in the north have been under boil water orders for years. In accusing the Liberals of not making this a priority, Mantha comes close to saying First Nations are treated as second class. He says in Southern Ontario a water advisory wouldn’t last longer than 48 hours. However Premier Kathleen Wynne says ensuring First Nations have clean drinking water is a priority. Wynne says the goal is to see boil water advisories end on all Aboriginal reserves.
