Neskantaga First Nation demands action on 20-year boil-water advisory

The Neskantaga First Nation in northern Ontario is demanding that all federal parties make First Nations health an election issue. 

The fly-in community in the James Bay lowlands has the longest-standing boil-water advisory in the country — more than 20 years. More than 300 people have been forced to live under a boil water advisory since 1995.
