OTTAWA - More than one hundred municipal wastewater systems did not report how much raw sewage overflowed from their pipes in 2017 but Environment Canada is only investigating two of them for violating federal regulations.
Data provided to The Canadian Press recently showed over one trillion litres of raw sewage leaked into Canadian waterways between 2013 and 2017, including 215 billion litres in 2017 alone - a 10 per cent increase over 2013.
Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says the government isnt specifically looking at ways to improve reporting rates of municipalities but, if there is more to do, the federal government would consider it.
McKenna said Tuesday that climate change is expected to bring about more frequent storms, like the flash flood rainfall in Toronto a week ago that left the harbourfront waters covered in debris from the toilets of millions of Toronto residents.
This is a real problem, McKenna said.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Does it just seem like it because they are posted here every day, or has the sheer volume of these kind of stories increased by an order of magnitude since Trump threatens to shut down their free taxpayer money spigots
Oh canaDUH, oh canaDUH!
What’s the weather going to be like this weekend?

By enacting laws and regulations and taxes to fund this folly as the sheeple sit on their hands and go along.
“A (Not Quite) Complete List Of Things Supposedly
Caused By Global Warming”
By sending rockets filled with water to cool it down???
Is there ANYTHING climate change can’t do?
Common propaganda, that has increased since Trump. Yes it is a money issue, not just for the governments. The media has also made a fortune off of this BS!
No mention of Mr. Gore.... What a dirty, slimy piece of excrement!!!!
Is also a religion to many of the youth, they don’t have a replacement theology readily available. Outside of what the government/media sells them next...
Man, talk about reaching.
This is all about forwarding the meme to condition the public regarding this hoax.
Take off, you hosers. Beauty, eh?
Is this they’re way of saying climate change will cause people to piss and crap more?
“Climate change likely to cause more sewage leaks, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna warns/”
You are leaking raw bull shit Cathy.....get a life.
Well, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, you Canucks need to adapt and increase your sewage capacities, because no matter what man does, the globe is going to either heat or cool or have severe storms or unusually calm seasons as God sees fit.
Cut government spending.
Nothing can do that.
I blame climate change for the reason I can never win the Power Ball.
Climate change causes people to eat more burritos?
No. ...and if you don’t adjust your attitude , it may come after you personally .
