Canada violates human rights, northern Ontario First Nations tell UN

 


The lack of safe drinking water in three northwestern Ontario First Nations is on the agenda Monday at the United Nations Committee meeting on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Shoal Lake 40, Neskantaga and Grassy Narrows (Asubpeeschoseewagong Netum Anishinabek) First Nations were all planning to make presentations to the committee in Geneva, Switzerland.

None of the First Nations have tap water that is safe to drink.
