First Nations communities suffer through tainted water crisis despite government promises

Neskantaga First Nation, located in a remote community in northern Ontario, has been through a quarter of a century without clean drinking water and giving it the longest boil water advisory in Canada. Since 2015, the Trudeau government has pledged more than $2 billion to address the water crisis in First Nations communities. But First Nations allege government policies and a lack of oversight has led to flawed and incomplete work being done. Krista Hessey reports.
