PM Trudeau announces Iqaluit water infrastructure funding, responds to papal apology – April 1, 2022

April 1, 2022 at 7:23 am  Federal, Politics



In a virtual event, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces $214 million in federal funding to improve the safety and sustainability of Iqaluit’s water-supply system. He is joined by Dan Vandal, the federal minister of northern affairs, P.J. Akeeagok, the premier of Nunavut, and Kenney Bell, the mayor of Iqaluit. Residents in Nunavut’s capital were unable to drink their tap water after it was found to be contaminated with fuel twice in the last six months. The prime minister also responds to the apology from Pope Francis for the Catholic Church’s role in the abuse that took place in Canada’s residential school system. The Pope made the apology during his final meeting with First Nations, Inuit and Métis delegations earlier in the day at the Vatican.
