APC Media Release – Chiefs express frustration over lack of action in Potlotek First Nation Sept. 14

September 14, 2017

Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Chiefs in Atlantic Canada are expressing frustration and concern over

Canada’s lack of action to address serious water conditions in Potlotek First Nation. It’s been one
year since residents of the Cape Breton indigenous community raised serious concerns about the
quality of their drinking water, and this week, the community has been advised by Health Canada not
to drink the water, bathe in it or even wash clothes in it. To date, no clear action plan has been
committed and no funding confirmed to address these repeated water issues.
