Well, I have been here almost a year and a half, and its never a dull moment. About half an hour ago this hit the news:
Boil water advisory for Montreal expanded to most of city
MONTREAL – City of Montreal has extended the scope of the precautionary boil notice issued earlier Wednesday morning.
It now includes the entire area south of the Metropolitain Boulevard, from LaSalle to Pointe-aux-Trembles. It also includes the northern district of Anjou and the city of Charlemagne, as well as Mont-Royal, Hampstead, Westmount, Cote St. Luc and Montreal East.
According to the city, the boil water advisory is a preventive measure after a problem at the Atwater filtration plant.
Residents are being asked to bring their water to a bubbling boil for at least one minute before consuming.
The city will issue a notice once it is safe to drink the water and the advisory is lifted.
Non-boiled water can be used for hygiene, taking showers or for other household purposes, such as washing clothes. Dishes can be washed in hot water, but will need to be dried thoroughly.
It is not recommended to drink the water, wash or prepare food, brush teeth or make ice with tap water that has not been boiled for at least one minute.
The City of Montreal is holding a press conference at 11:30 to provide further details.
