Ignoring political background and more based on leadership traits, career success, communicating abilities, and experience, who would you try and convince to one day be a political party leader in PEI?

For me, people of any country or region are the most accurately described by the way they care about the ones among themselves who get born disadvantaged in some way. On PEI, nothing tells more about people then the fact that there are native people here with no access to clean drinking, or child bathing, water. Give me a party leader that will have balls to make that an election issue and he/she will have my vote.

Lack of clean drinking water is definitely a problem in Canada for aboriginal people, but I didn't think it was an issue on PEI. Where do aboriginals not have clean drinking water on the island?

Being from away, I do not know all of the Island that well. If you really care to learn about exact areas where native people have no access to clean water you might want to get in touch with this person: https://www.facebook.com/eliza.knockwood

Few years ago she was talking about her relative travelling daily to give baby a bath - it came to me as a shock.

And being from away, you probably wouldn't realize that aboriginal affairs is a federal jurisdiction/responsibility and therefore the issue doesn't really belong in a topic discussing a question concerning a provincial political party?

Good topic, wrong thread :)

Before it being provincial and federal issue, I find it to be human and humanitarian issue. Federal/provincial distinction does not stop out politicians from talking about DVA (federal department and federal issue). I am aware that DVA office closing impacts a few islanders, but so does not having access to clean drinking water. To an outsider, it looks like some Islanders matter more than other Islanders.

Again, is there an issue for aboriginals on PEI with lack of access to clean drinking water? I don't recall hearing that it's an issue here.

Even more reason for you to not be bringing up the subject in a topic initiated to discuss the relatively mundane subject of possible leaders of a provincial political party leader.

Doesn't this broader ranging humanitarian subject deserve its own topic???

What is your point here? Outside of what looks like a silly little rant you don't seem to be making a point for either side of the issue.

Is there an issue on PEI around clean drinking water for aboriginals or not?

Sorry about the late reply. I was trying to get more information. This is all I got from the person who reported it few years ago
Quote:
....that issue was about Morell reserve, a community surrounded by potatoe fields. My sister has since left that community and I have not been sucessful in getting an update on their current water issues.

Unless something dramatically changed, I guess reserve is still there and fields are still there and, for the part of the year, water is not safe for drinking.

That is hardly an example of systemic problems with drinking water for aboriginals. I'm sure you could find the same anecdotal evidence for much of the Island population.

None of this is to say though that a provincial leader cannot have concerns about the first nations population regardless of whether or not it is a federal or provincial issue. Any good leader is going to be concerned with the entire population regardless of background.
