NDP Calls on Trudeau to Deliver Treatment Centre for Grassy Narrows

Pharmacare to be first bill NDP will advance in new Parliament, Singh says

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh made the following statement:

“The new Liberal government must quickly deliver on the mercury treatment centre that was promised to Grassy Narrows nearly two years ago. The people of Grassy Narrows deserve the kind of care and treatment we would all want for our families. The toxic chemicals that were dumped 50 years ago into the English River system in a corporate crime left generations of families suffering from mercury poisoning. While Justin Trudeau said all the right things about reconciliation, he failed to sign an agreement to help the community care for those suffering the effects of the poison. And when a Grassy Narrows community member confronted the Prime Minister at a party fundraiser, Trudeau mockingly shot back: “Thank you for your donation.” We must do better. New Democrats stand in support with the community of Grassy Narrows and will continue the work to help build a treatment centre for residents affected by long-term mercury exposure, working with the Nation’s leadership and the community.”
