TORONTO – Human Rights Watch released a 92-page report on the crisis state of drinking water in First Nations communities.

Health Canada says there are 133 water advisories across First Nations in Canada affecting 89 communities, most of them being concentrated in Ontario.

Bellegarde said now is the time for Canada to deliver on that promise.
