Grassy Narrows First Nation declares emergency over bad water


A state of emergency will remain in place at Grassy Narrows First Nation until the community gets answers about the chemicals found in its tap water, says deputy chief Randy Fobister.

The First Nation, also known as Asubpeechoseewagong, is located about 100 kilometres north of Kenora, Ont. and has been under a boil water advisory for more than a year, but new concerns are emerging about the extent and longevity of the problems.
