Has anything else become known about this particular issue? Were the 
regulators the only problem or only the first known problem? I guess travel 
and logistics complicate things here, but I seem to remember it being 
mentioned that replacement regulators were on their way.


P.S. I hope Canada is working out and is not too cold at this time of year 
compared to your usual places of residence. ;-)

(I read recently that Canada doesn't have mandated national limits for lead in 
public water supplies, which happens to be yet another huge concern for 
marginalised communities, this alongside the matter of multinationals 
apparently taking whatever drinkable water those communities might have had in 
order to sell big-name bottled water to affluent consumers.)
