That's funny. I use that phrase, "First World Problems" a lot when people mistake things like political debates and Metro delays as serious issues.
I'm in Westmount now and can't buy a damn cup of coffee 'cause of the water thing - now THAT'S serious.
This is pretty messed up though. The first people that drank water and reported this are probably, what, ill? You don't expect this to happen over here, we are completely dependent on the gvmt infrastructures.
