On Monday, the department's senior assistant deputy minister Lynda Clairmont replaced Scotton on the file with assistant deputy minister Joanne Wilkinson, but Moonias said he isn't satisfied.

"It is with great disappointment that I reach out to you today," Moonias wrote in an email to Miller obtained by CBC News today.

Wilkinson was the Ontario regional director general under former Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper's government and was tasked with implementing third-party management on First Nations to handle their finances when they are deep in debt.

CBC News has reached out to Indigenous Services Canada for comment, but has not heard back yet.

Relationship with first Nations has to be respectful

Neskantaga, a fly-in community about 450 km north of Thunder Bay, Ont., has been on a long-term drinking water advisory since 1995 — two years after a newly constructed water treatment plant failed to provide clean drinking water.

During the 2015 federal election campaign, then-Liberal leader Justin Trudeau promised to lift all long-term boil water advisories on reserves within five years of coming to power. That same day, Neskantaga's chief made a public appeal to all party leaders to personally intervene on the issue, if elected.

Upgrades to the plant were supposed to be completed in 2018, but the project faced numerous delays and the work isn't complete yet.

Nearly all of Neskantaga's 300 members moved temporarily to a Thunder Bay hotel last month after an oily substance was discovered in the community's reservoir and running water was cut off.

Indigenous Services Canada said the substance is a non-toxic mineral oil coming from a distribution pump in the reservoir and repairs should be completed soon.

Moonias said Scotton "disregarded safety concerns" during his first call to the department about evacuating the community.

The federal government has since rented all the rooms at the Victoria Inn Hotel for the community, creating a lockdown bubble to protect them from COVID-19.

The grand chief for Nishnawbe Aski Nation, which represents 49 First Nations in northern Ontario, said he's heard complaints from other chiefs about Scotton and suggested federal officials need to reconsider her role as regional director general.

"For anyone to interact, to work effectively with our leadership, it has to be respectful," Nishnawbe Aski Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler said.

"I would just ask, I would just say this to the senior people above her, that they need to really take the time to listen to chiefs. Not just Chief Moonias, but other chiefs who have expressed concerns in the past. To look at all those facts and to make a determination if Anne Scotton is the ideal person to carry on this role as the most senior official for this region moving forward."

Neskantaga's call for Scotton's removal came after Miller overruled her framing of an investigation into the community's water crisis.

At the chief's request, the department announced a third-party investigation two weeks ago into the business practices of consultants and engineering companies hired to end Neskantaga's boil water advisory. The investigation could extend to other communities.

Scotton emailed Moonias the draft terms of reference for the probe last week, with a line in the attached document for the chief's signature. She also informed the chief that the consulting firm MNP had been selected as the third party investigator — the same company that used to be Neskantaga's third-party manager.

Scotton's message contradicted a commitment Miller made to Moonias to co-develop the terms of the investigation with the chief and council.

After learning of the contents of Scotton's email, Miller emailed Moonias to reverse her decision to choose MNP as the third-party investigator and state that the terms of reference will be co-developed with the community.

"The job that Anne Scotton occupies is perhaps one of the most difficult in Indigenous Services Canada and she does great work, but what she reflected to the chief was not the reflection of the conversation. So it was right in that case to send my regrets to the chief that this was not something that should have been sent," Miller said last week.

"We'll be working with him in terms of elaborating the terms of reference of the investigation, as it is enlarged to other communities. And critical to that is having their input."
