Niki Ashton Addresses Mould Contamination and No Running Water in First Nations Communities

MP Niki Ashton spoke in the House of Commons during question period yesterday and stated that the Federal Government is ignoring communities like Garden Hill that doesn’t have running water and Mathias Colomb Cree Nation that has over 500 students that can’t go to school because of mould contamination at the school.


She asked when the Prime Minister will stop the empty words about reconciliation and relationships and urgently work with first nations to deal with the serious crisis that they are facing right now.


Dan Vandal, the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Indigenous Services responded to Ashton by saying that all children deserve a safe and healthy environment to learn in and work is under way to remediate mould at the school and it’s expected to be completed by the end of this week.
