to realize that LIE-berals DO NOT WANT unreliable and potential enemies loitering in hallways.............................
listening to THEIR conversations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Considering HOW IMPORTANT caucus privacy is to LIE-berals..................................
and considering that JWR is no longer a LIE-beral because she is unhappy with the LAVALIN POISON that was spoken under the
cover of LIE-beral Caucus Privacy CRAP - it is no wonder they WANT JWR OUT .............................................
and far away from them to reduce the risk of her hearing stuff that might harm LIE-berals if it was repeated.............................
to the general public!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I see that as one more good reason to stay as long as possible. Just to rub their noses in it.

She may have derived some personal satisfaction from it...................

but all it did is make her look publicly petty and entitled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But then - as I have noted- at heart she IS A DAMNED LIE-beral!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is an article illustrating the failure of LIE-beral policy related to native Cdns!!

Why some First Nations still don’t have clean drinking water — despite Trudeau’s promise

By Jane Gerster and kristahessey Global news. Published Sept 28, 2019

A group of people sitting at a table: From left, consultation officer Daryl Redsky and Chief Erwin Redsky, both of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, and Phil Cesario, design project manager at PM Associates Ltd. go over the final design drawings for Freedom Road, an all-weather road which will connect the reserve to the Trans Canada highway, in Winnipeg on Friday, Nov. 25, 2016. Shoal Lake 40 has been under a boil water advisory for the past 17 years.

During the 2015 election campaign, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau promised to eliminate all long-term water advisories on First Nations by March 2021.

(In a CBC news release from a couple of years back - three adjacent native reserves were able to lift a 20 year boil water advisory - simple because a band member graduated from high school - a rare event in native life - then the kid went to college and that is mpre rare still - and got CERTIFIED to operate the govt supplied filtration plant that had been sitting idle waiting for an operator for 20 years!!!!!!!!!!!! Naturally as soon as the kid got certified the band council put hin to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The ugly reality is that FEW skilled people are willing to live on a reserve due to the multiple social problems plaguing the inhabitants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Many Indigenous communities have gone for years and years without clean drinking water — living, as one woman put it, “in Third-World conditions in a First-World country.”

(In the case of the Kashetchewan “water disaster” - the problem was MADE BY NATIVES!! The Kash band had squandered their filtration plant repair money on a band trip to California - with wine and good food and gambling - and then had no money to repair their plant - and they tried to blame govt!! Naturally the mess blew up in their faces but they eventually got govt aid - once they admitted their deliberate screw up!!!!!!!)

Some advisories are so old, explains Dawn Martin-Hill, one of the founders of the Indigenous Studies Program at McMaster University, that “you could have a 16-year-old girl growing up in northern Ontario who has never been able to drink or bathe in the water that they have access to.”

With 17 months left on the clock, Trudeau’s government has nearly halved the number of long-term advisories — those in place for a year or longer — from 105 down to 56, according to government data.

However, that data has its limitations: it doesn’t include B.C. or any of the territories. And even if Trudeau eliminates long-term boil water advisories by 2021, experts like Martin-Hill say he won’t have actually addressed the issues that led to them — nor will it mean that all First Nations people have guaranteed, long-term access to clean drinking water.

(In other words the reserves that are hardest to service and are most isolated and hardest to reach are being left out of the LIE-beral solutions!! LIE-berals love picking the easy low hanging fruit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

So why, despite the federal government’s pledge, do some First Nations still not have potable water, and what exactly needs to be done to get it to them?

“I’m still asking that question many years later,” says Martin-Hill, McMaster's Paul R. MacPherson Chair in Indigenous Studies and a Mohawk woman living in the Six Nations of the Grand River in southern Ontario.

(People ASK MANY THINGS about native problems - and RARELY get a straight answer!! And that IS THE FIRST NATIVE PROBLEM - VERY LITTLE TRUTH supplied in any issue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Martin-Hill grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., after her single mother fled Six Nations during the '60s Scoop to avoid having her children taken from her and placed with non-Indigenous families. It was a hard choice but the right one, Martin-Hill says.

One of the side effects of this move was that Martin-Hill grew up with clean water that flowed easily from the tap. It wasn’t until she was older — and within a week of being back in Six Nations — that Martin-Hill experienced her first boil water advisory.

She went to university looking for answers:

As she said, she’s still hunting for answers.
Why don’t all First Nations have clean water?

(I suggest the answer relates to that larger Yankee population which makes it easier for white technicians to drop in for the day to a reserve and work and then commute away some place less drunken and violent and desperate at night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And or -the Yankee govt is less tolerant of native corruption than their Cdn LIE-beral counterparts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Canadian governments have spent many years and billions of dollars trying to make clean water flow from the taps on First Nations. At any given time, some 100 First Nations are under water advisories, according to non-profit organization The Council of Canadians.

There are three types of advisories: boil water, do not consume and do not use. The most common is a boil water advisory, in which communities are told they should boil all water for at least one minute before drinking, brushing their teeth or cooking and that they shouldn’t use tap water to bathe infants, toddlers or the elderly.

(In other words such a “boil water” precaution is of the same sort commonly used by white people at their summer homes on the lake - that water aint bad but is not guaranteed good either - so be careful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The reasons why water on First Nations isn’t potable varies, impacted by everything from the water's origin to the pipes through which it flows to how remote the community is.

(Ah the pipes on the reserve MAY BE of LEAD?? And thus natives may be drinking water that is no better than what some white people are getting in town!!!!!!!!!!!!)

On July 7, Attawapiskat First Nation declared a state of emergency over concerns about disinfection byproducts called trihalomethanes. A few days later, Eabametoong First Nation followed suit, its chief explaining the decision in a press release on July 15: “The discovery of high levels of trihalomethanes, combined with ongoing issues with our water and wastewater systems, has forced us to declare a state of emergency to protect the health of our community.”

(And WHERE is this trihalomethane COMING FROM?? Attiwapiskat is about as isolated a place as you can get on this planet - unless you move to Antarctica!! So should we ask if white people are also being exposed to this Crap?? All the rivers around Attiwapskat flow from more populous southerly starting points in Ontari-owe and Quebec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And what are the “ongoing issues with Attiwapiskat water and waste water systems? Is this native code for more CORRUPTION ISSUES?? We should recall that former Attawapiskat band chief Teresa Spence watched over a council that burned through $150 million dollars of our tax money - designated for building houses and yet NOT A SINGLE house was built - nor is there any record of WHERE all those tens of millions went!! CORRUPTION INDEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(In the case of Kashetchewan the water “crisis” was made worse by a beaver dam- that caused their untreated sewage to back up into town and foul the water supply to the broken filtration plant!! And NONE of those descendants of great hunters and fishermen had the gumption to do anything about the beaver dam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(YES - Kash natives would rather shower in untreated sewage and bitch at govt than bother messing with beavers and make them move on!! It is a valid question: how much native trouble is generated by crap attitudes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

In Attawapiskat‘s case, the government earmarked $1.5-million to repair an existing treatment plant and said there are plans for a second system. Eabametoong declared a state of emergency after the water developed a “noticeable foul smell and taste,”however the community has been under a boil-water advisory for nearly two decades. Despite the state of emergency, Eabametoong expected the "long-term" advisory to lift in August because of a new water treatment plant.

(Gosh - towns along the shore of Lake Ontari-owe routinely deal with drinking water that smells a lot like DEAD FISH - thanks to summer algae blooms!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

As of late September, however, the community was still under an advisory.
Why the solutions are flawed

The federal government has a list of solutions to these long-term boil water advisories, including patchwork repairs, permanent repairs, entire new systems, feasibility studies and better training and monitoring.

(“FEASIBILITY STUDIES” Is this LIE-beral speak meaning they are counting votes and calculating what a solution might cost on each reserve?? And deciding - based on the vote count - if they WANT TO HELP?? How self serving and shameless ARE LIE-berals anyway????????????)

During the Maclean's leadership debate earlier this month, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer said he would also end long-term boil water advisories, while Green Party leader Elizabeth May said her party would fulfill all "the requirements on the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the murdered missing Indigenous women’s inquiry." NDP leader Jagmeet Singh has committed to lifting all drinking water advisories, not just long-term ones, by 2021.

Many have made it clear the existing solutions are imperfect.

Take Six Nations, where Martin-Hill lives. The government gave the community money for a treatment plant in 2014, but that was it — “no money to operate it,” she says. With few options, Martin-Hill says the community took the money, built their “state-of-the-art treatment plant and said: ‘We’ll figure it out as we always do.’”

(Uh huh - and that “NO MONEY FOR OPERATIONS EXCUSE” was previously used by KASH natives after they had blown their budget on that California trip!!! There is good reason to think natives are being less than honest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And LIE-berals have made the situation WORSE by dropping the Conservative requirement that band councils MUST post all their expenses on line where a accountant may check the numbers and bills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The LIE-beral approach- of don’t worry, we trust you has apparently played into irresponsible hands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Add in the fact that, while the government may technically be on track for a promise kept, an investigation from Globe and Mail reporter Matt McClearn analyzed more than a decade of government data and found “the overall reliability of the underlying water systems is little improved since the party came to power.”

(Oh GOSH!! An official record of LIE-beral Fake News from Cdn media?????????)

“There are a lot of systems across the country on First Nations reserves that are in poor shape that aren’t on a boil water advisory, and the risk scores reflect that,” says McClearn.

The risk scores are updated every year, when the government looks at the design of public water systems, how well they are operated and maintained, the associated record-keeping, the quality of the source water and the operators’ qualification to come up with a ranking from one to 10, with 10 being extreme risk.
“The risk scores can tell you about systems that have problems that are not on boil water advisories yet,” McClearn says.

(UH HUH - and there is good reason to suspect that natives are rather unskilled and doing limited maintenance since they apparently find it easier to blame white people than to take honest action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
