Leona Aglukkaq

3 ex-Tory MPs are now running for the People’s Party of Canada.
Montreal had planned to dump untreated wastewater into the St. Lawrence River beginning Oct. 18.
In a letter sent Friday to Aglukkaq, Coderre challenged the interpretation of federal laws the government invoked to suspend the sewage dump that was set to begin this weekend.
"Based on limited data, Environment Canada cannot conclude whether or not the untreated waste water to be released will be acutely toxic."
"They are all of them -- Keystone, Energy East, Kinder Morgan and Enbridge -- unacceptable, no matter what kind of process one puts them through."
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May says Aglukkaq should have stayed home.
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.
Montreal plans to dump the untreated wastewater into the river between Oct. 18 and 25.
"That was quite a patronizing statement made by the prime minister."
Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq, the Conservative incumbent for the vast riding of Nunavut, shouldn't have to worry about the Oct. 19 election. And yet, some have doubts.
