The residents of the city of Winnipeg -- estimated at 633,450 according to the 2006 census, but obviously much higher now -- are currently under a boil water advisory since Tuesday January 27, 2015.
(Perhaps the contamination is from all the racists peeing in the communal water supply, since the city has just been handed the infamous distinction of being Canada-s most racist city? -- just saying)
The fear for Winnipeg citizens is that their city-s water supply had been contaminated after six of the 39 water samples taken and tested Monday January 26, 2015, were found positive for coliform bacteria. Escherichia coli (better known as "E. coli") is a form of this bacteria.
