"Water board adviser caught lobbying for private water service providers in First Nation communities. Bruce Carson, former policy adviser to Harper, has been caught lobbying for Indian Affairs to book contracts with H20 Global Group (a company 20% owned by an intimate friend) to provide water treatment systems in FN communities. He " believed the company was on the "cusp" of making a breakthrough into the on-reserve water market."
Wouldn't doubt he was aware of Bill S-11

private water companies?!
Well this was written in the Globe & Mail article
: "First nations leaders were allegedly being warned by the promoters of the H2O Pro
system that new legislation before the Senate will require them to meet stringent drinking water standards but will provide no resources to do so. The communities were allegedly told that government connections could be used to find money for the equipment and training if they purchased the systems. "
Carson is also on the board of the Alberta oilsands water review panel
