Pressure is growing on the federal government to help fund construction of a road for a reserve under one of Canadas longest boil-water advisories. Manitobas Municipal Government Minister Drew Caldwell says the province will pay one-third of the road construction to connect Shoal Lake 40 First Nation with the outside world. He says all thats needed is for Ottawa to do the same. (The reserve straddles the Ontario-Manitoba boundary and was carved off from the mainland a century ago to build an aqueduct to supply fresh water to Winnipeg. It has no all-weather road and has been under a boil-water advisory for 17 years.)
