Preview Clip

A crowdfunding campaign is underway to pay Ottawa's portion of an all-weather road for a reserve under one of the longest boil-water advisories in Canada. The Shoal Lake 40 First Nation reserve, which straddles the Ontario-Manitoba boundary, was cut off from the mainland a century ago to build an aqueduct to Winnipeg. Organizer Rick Harp hopes to raise 10-million dollars to pay the federal government's share of a permanent road for the community. (Residents were left in tears last week when a federal cabinet minister visited the reserve, but refused to commit to seeing a road built.)
