There has been a shocking massive fish kill off in a river in Quebec. Tens of thousands of fish died in the Yamaska River near St-Hyacinthe, Quebec, east of Montreal.
But it wasn't a dreaded oil pipeline that killed all those fish. It was the politicians who claim they are protecting the environment by opposing oil pipelines that killed all those fish.
The city of St-Hyacinthe was doing what they call a “planned overflow of wastewater into the river”. Waste water sounds so much less gross than raw human sewage but what they really did was dump 8.5 million litres of raw sewage into the Yamaska River over two days starting June 28.
It got worse though because these officials flushed their sewage when the water level in the river was so low that the dump caused 10% of the entire water flow to be sewage. How gross is that?
The good people of St-Hyacinthe spent Canada day dealing with thousands of dead fish on the river banks of their sewage contaminated river.
Remember when Montreal Mayor and Former Liberal MP Denis Coderre dumped 8 billion litres of sewage into the St Lawrence river back in November?
The irony of course is that Coderre opposes the Energy East pipeline project bringing Alberta oil to the Irving oil refinery on the east coast because he claims to be worried about that exact same river. The similarities between Coderre and the Mayor of St-Hyacinthe don’t end there since they both love the federal money they get from the Western provinces without giving a thought to where it comes from.
