A Canada-wide investigation involving 10 media outlets and nine universities has revealed high levels of lead in the country's drinking water. Some places are higher than they were in Flint.  Montreal, Regina and Prince Rupter B.C. had some of the highest level.  Canada has stricter lead standers than the US but many of the finds exceeded US standards too.

This is actually pretty scary stuff.

It appears a lot of it is due to aging pipes and infrastructure. It shows why it's so important to devote more money into infrastructure here, Canada etc.

Yes indeed.  I am sure it is very similar to places in the US we have no clue about yet.
