The federal environment minister says she found out only recently about Montreal's plan to dump eight billion litres of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence River. Leona Aglukkaq (Ah-GLOO-kah) has tweeted that her office learned the wastewater dump plan last week. But documents obtained by The Canadian Press show the federal department has been copied on correspondence since September 2014. That falls in line with Montreal mayor Denis Coderre's version of events. He's backed up by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard, who says the mayor is still willing to sit down and discuss the sewage dump. (The Quebec Environment Department also approved the one-week sewage dump in February. The issue has become fodder in the federal election campaign and has also been panned by environmental activist Erin Brockovich.)
