City still losing drinking water

Montreal still loses more than a third of its potable water because of bad water mains. The number has improved, but not as much as it should have.

This is from the report of the city’s auditor general, who also criticizes the slow adoption of composting by the public.

Another item from the report is that the city’s unable to confirm that it’s being environmentally responsible with collected snow.

Journalists are getting stories from each section of the report. Yet another item: food trucks, launched a couple of summers ago to great fanfare, are running out of steam and not as popular as they were initially. TVA got food truck spokesman Gaëlle Cerf to say the truck operators need more freedom to stop where they think best, not where the city ordains.
