A departing Conservative MP says the federal government has committed to building a road to a remote aboriginal community along the Manitoba-Ontario boundary. The Manitoba government and Winnipeg city hall have already committed to building a road to Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, but the federal government has so far refused. Joy Smith, a Conservative who is not seeking re-election, says she has been told Ottawa will now commit money for the road. (The reserve was cut off from the mainland a century ago when an aqueduct was built to supply fresh water to Winnipeg. The community has been under a boil-water advisory for 17 years and has no all-weather road.)
