Preview Clip

More than three-thousand people are petitioning Winnipeg city hall to make good on a commitment to help build a road for an isolated reserve. The petition was started amid concerns Winnipeg is backing away from its promise to fund construction of an all-weather road for Shoal Lake 40 reserve. Chief Erwin Redsky says his community can't wait any longer for the road. (The reserve on the Manitoba-Ontario boundary was cut off from the mainland a century ago during construction of an aqueduct, which sends fresh water to Winnipeg. Both the province and prime minister-designate Justin Trudeau have said they will pay for part of the road.)
