DELAYED! Montreal Ordered to NOT Dump Sewage!

DELAYED! Montreal Ordered to NOT Dump Sewage to St. Lawrence River Pending Further Review!

“The St. Lawrence River is one of Canada’s most important waterways,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Denis Lebel.

We agree.

This is a tremendous win for swimmable, fishable, drinkable water in the St. Lawrence River and fresh water across North America. Now is the time to stop the practice for good. Now is the time to make the investments needed to bring our infrastructure up to 21st century standards.

Executive Director and Upper St. Lawrence Riverkeeper interviewed by CTV News about the decision. CTV News Interview

While our portion of the river is not downstream of where the City plans to release this massive amount of raw sewage, it is a part of the River we work every day to protect – the 3rd largest in North America, drinking water to millions and home to many threatened and endangered species. This is unacceptable and in this day and age we can and must do better. It is good to see the federal government in Canada take this interim step to what we hope will be a permanent solution.

The federal government is demanding Montreal stop its plan to dump sewage into the St. Lawrence river beginning on Sunday.
