Only 25 per cent were in the low- or no-risk category, the study reported. The results were confirmed by the federal Auditor-General. The Prime Minister's words Friday come on the heels of a health crisis on the Kashechewan reserve in northern Ontario, near James Bay, where the potential of E. coli poisoning meant drinking water had to be heavily chlorinated. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20051028.wmart1028/BNStory/National/
