Panel Discussion: Got Water? Thank Shoal Lake No. 40

March 21, 2016 — 

The United Nations recognizes the human right to water and sanitation, as “clean drinking water and sanitation are essential to the realization of all human rights”.

That Shoal Lake No. 40, an Indigenous community, is deprived of safe drinking water, as well an access road, garbage disposal and wastewater treatment, is a human rights violation. This community is at the other end of the water pipe from your home in Winnipeg and all our institutions. More than a Freedom Road is needed when this community lacks clean water.

Students, faculty, and the general public are invited to this free program to come and learn. Be part of a movement to ensure that Winnipeg is no longer considered the most racist city in Canada.

Panel Speakers:

  • Daryl Redsky, Consultation Officer, Shoal Lake No. 40
  • Samantha Redsky, Representative to the UN, Geneva for Shoal Lake No. 40
  • Cuyler Cotton, Policy Analyst, Shoal Lake No. 40
  • Dave Angus, President and CEO, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce
  • Emcee/Discussants Eduardo Da Costa/Shirley Thompson


NOTE: A day trip is being planned for April 22nd at 8:00 a.m. to Shoal Lake No. 40 to coincide with the Canadian Human Rights Museum visit. Come participate and be part of positive learning and change (sign-human up and payment required).
