Hi all…a story on lead in drinking water appeared in the Toronto Star today and from what I understand has appeared or will appear on Global News TV outlets across the country as well. It is fairly lengthy as far as these articles go with several interviews. City maps with lead concentrations are provided for Toronto and Montreal and there is a comparison of concentrations in Prince Rupert drinking water with those in Flint, Michigan, when they were experiencing high concentrations. The article will very likely elicit questions from drinking water consumers across the country. I haven’t watched all of the interviews but there is some focus on lack of transparency.
Is Canada’s tap water safe? Thousands of test results show high lead levels across the country https://globalnews.ca/news/6114854/canada-tapwater-high-lead-levels-investigation/
“Hundreds of thousands of Canadians could be consuming tap water laced with high levels of lead leaching from aging infrastructure and plumbing, a large collection of newly released data and documents reveals. It’s a key conclusion of a year-long investigation by more than 120 journalists from nine universities and 10 media organizations, including Global News and Concordia University’s Institute for Investigative Journalism.”
