An explosive new report has revealed that hundreds of thousands of Canadians have poisonous lead in our drinking water. [1]

Over 120 journalists have blown the lid on the dangerously high levels of lead in homes, schools and businesses across the country. And they’re saying that decision makers knew about this massive problem — but did nothing about it. [2][3]

In some communities, residents are consuming up to three times the level that federal regulations deem safe — and the health consequences are frightening. 

Indigenous nations have been sounding the alarm for decades — and now the rest of Canada is finally paying attention. If we can turn up the heat with a massive emergency petition calling on Trudeau to take immediate action to solve our water problem — he’ll know this crisis won’t blow over and he’ll have to act. Add your name now.

 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

We’re calling on you to:
1. Create a national drinking water standard with mandatory lead testing.
2. Provide adequate funding to municipalities and reserves so they can start the process of replacing lead pipes.
3. End boil water advisories on all reserves and provide clean drinking water to all Indigenous people.
