After 25 years without clean running water, dozens of people from Neskantaga First Nation in Ontario have now been evacuated from the community due to possible contamination in their reservoir. We talk to Allan Moonias and Chief Chris Moonias about the conditions in their community, and Chris Skead, chief of the Wauzhushk Onigum Nation, where a boil water advisory was lifted last month.
