Sask. First Nation calls out Saskatoon MP over remarks on water plants – CTV News

Piapot First Nation is demanding an apology from a Saskatoon MP over remarks made in the House of Commons last week.

On Feb. 5, Kevin Waugh, the MP for Saskatoon-Grasswood said he has seen First Nations in Saskatchewan burn down water treatment plants because of the current federal government.

“In my province of Saskatchewan, I’ve seen reserves burn down water treatment plants because this government has done little or nothing,” the MP claimed.

Waugh went on to say educated people are needed on various First Nations to run the water treatment plants.

“These water treatment plants need education and they need people on reserve to operate the water treatment plants and that’s part of the problem we’ve seen from this government for the past eight and half years,” Waugh added.

The MP’s comments were made during the discussion of Bill C-61, or the First Nations Clean Water Act.
