(UPDATE) Not just Montreal: 100 Quebec municipalities dump raw sewage (but hate dirty Alberta oil)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Just a quick update to a story I told you about earlier — that the city of Montreal was discharging raw, untreated sewage right in to the river.

Because news comes that fully 100 Quebec municipalities do the same. And have for years.

They just dump untreated sewage into their precious lakes and streams. On their way to an anti-oilsands protest.

Where are the protesters? Where’s Greenpeace? Where’s the David Suzuki Foundation? Just kidding — they don’t really care about the environment. They’re only paid to oppose Canadian ethical oil from Alberta.

Next time a Quebec environmentalist tells you that they’re offended by Alberta oil and gas, you can tell them they’re literally full of crap.

@ IanandElaine Holland – Environment Canada?

Too funny – the environment Canada nazis only go after those who cannot defend themselves – far easier to pick on a small business than take on a provincial city council – those councils are bought and paid for with tax payers money – especially in kebec.

And guess what. Harper put big money into waste water treatment during the recession. There was a big focus… I guess the Quebec Gov’t didn’t bother to apply for stimulus money for those projects. It would be interesting to see who actually did.

Ezra, did you not know? This is not sewage, it’s pure sparkling clean water they’re returning to nature. That’s because progressives don’t poop. This is why they are all full of **it.

Ianandelaine… Environment Canada has given Victoria until 2023 to stop “pooping” into the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and the federal portion of the grant to do so ends in 2018… Since their latest “fix” – to create a plant that would have dumped into an Esquimalt bay -“Home of Canada’s Pacific Fleet” – got nixed by that community – they are back to tap-dancing… In the meantime it is fun to watch the hardcore West Coast Greenies twist themselves into knots trying to explain this “inconvenient truth” while they go after sun tan lotion bathers ostensibly destroying coral reefs!… Are they stark, raving nuts out here!?.. You betcha!…

If you are a Politician in PQ then you deal with the Unions and the Mafia. This is a fact.

Any pollution in the east is for the good of the country – in the west it is always bad for the country

After all the lefty folks are in the east and trying to take over the west – once they are entrenched solidly in the west pollution will be fine – it is all part of being a member of the lefty society.

OK, so where is this government body called “Environment Canada”?

@ Alan – Point taken

I give Ezra a lot of credit. CBC seldom does anything good or right, but if they do, and it’s truly newsworthy, he shares it with us here, while he (and Brian) continue to take them to task where appropriate. Have you ever seen CBC do the same? Show this maturity? Put the news and customers ahead of rivalries? NEVER!!

I hope Brian starts questioning Trudon’t as pert of the media scrum once in power.

Peter, my point had to do with having confidence in what is being reported. If one of many points being reported on is wrong or is exaggerated then it puts into question the accuracy of the other assertations ( even if true) as well as the authority of the reporter. The exaggeration/inaccuracy becomes an easy target for those who wish to put the whole report and reporter into question.
In this case the exaggeration was totally unnecessary to make the point and I am sorry to say only serves to undermine the report and the reporter.
I am a firm supporter of Ezra and the Rebel and do not want to see him and his opinions being simply ignored and dismissed ( as is often the case) out of hand.
Just trying to make a constructive criticism.

Oh come on, we know that not ALL pollution is equal. You can’t expect to tax Quebec or Victoria to be allowed to take a dump, but you can tax Alberta for producing a product that generates power and enables transportation for ALL Canadians that when used creates plant food.
commented 2015-10-31 19:08:02 -0400
I wonder how many towns and cities in Ontario are doing it ?
commented 2015-10-31 19:00:04 -0400
I grew up in Montreal. We used to watch the sewage flushing into Lake St. Louis which we called Pooey Louie. Quebec politics resemble their sewage practices.

Alan Shragie said, "such as whether Victoria does dump untreated sewage into water every day of the year. "

It does. But okay, let’s assume you are correct about Montreal and it is only temporary. What about the other 100 municipalities?

And all these years the Canadian Government has issued fines to the boaters who don’t have holding tanks in their boats. That is like a mouse poop to a Cow patty.

Quebec is full of it.

ALAN SHRAGIE Not sure on montreal think it is not an everday event, victoria does every single day of every year year after year decade after decade, As for the other towns he is 100% correct they have no buisness protesting anything.
commented 2015-10-31 17:41:38 -0400
Ezra, I agree with the opinion you expressed. However, for the sake of your own credibility do not exaggerate. Montreal does not normally pump untreated sewage into the St Lawrence. It needs to do repairs to its treatment system and has requested permission to dump untreated sewage into the river for a week while it effects the repairs. You made it sound like it does this 24/7 which is not the case. Given such exaggeration it may make some ( as it did me) question your other affirmations , such as whether Victoria does dump untreated sewage into water every day of the year.
Your point remains though that many who complain about oil sands and pipe lines are hypocrites and should be more concerned about the dumping of raw sewage.

Just another bunch of environmental morons. Look over there at how bad they are, all the while dumping sewage into lakes and rivers, and not a peep from $$green peace$$ suzuki tides canada what a bunch of AHOLES ,
