Q: How is it that with water everywhere, some Canadians do not have water to drink?

A: because some First Nations communities do not have access to drinkable fresh water!

Canadians are big water users and are also advanced in water treatment and distribution technologies. Yet, in one of the most water rich countries in the world, approximately one out of every five First Nations communities in Canada lacks access to clean, safe and sustainable drinking water. Why do some First Nations communities have these problems and others do not and are thriving? How can there be economic independence and advancement for these communities without this basic human right? The brothers travel to First Nations communities in search of the answers.
