Canadian government

Canadian government has ordered Montreal not to dump 2 billion gallons (7.57 billion liters) of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence River as part of a plan to rebuild a riverside expressway.
Federal infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel said Wednesday that an independent review would be carried out after many Montrealers called for the federal government to step in, just a week ahead of national elections. Conservative Prime Minister’s government had known about what the city had wanted to do for some time but didn’t intervene until now.
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York also got involved, asking U.S. environmental regulators to work with Canada to stop it. The EPA said it has no regulatory authority in Canada.
