  • Message to Trudeau: Voters spoke loud and clear for cities - Spacing National
    in large urban areas But does regime change provide an opportunity to fundamentally change this fraught relationship beyond simply transferring dollars Robertson currently BCMC s Chair concedes that the municipal sector opted to avoid that discussion in the past Mayors have been reluctant to challenge the Constitution Robertson is emphatic that cities need the federal government to fulfill its promise to increase funding especially for infrastructure He also believes that BCMC has the right institutional structure to get those dollars flowing Yet some legal scholars believe that the language of the Constitution should be interpreted as a growing tree respectful of today s context not as fathers of the BNA Act wrote it 148 years ago before we had cars indoor plumbing subways subsidized housing and income support which are largely delivered by big cities Towards a new partnership BCMC s members including mayors from every province have tremendous political capital and are no ordinary interest group They have first hand knowledge of enormously significant issues facing the country Robertson Edmonton s Don Iveson and Brian Bowman of Winnipeg represent a generation of young energetic leaders with new ideas and a hopeful vision that arguably sets the stage for the acceptance of an equally youthful prime minister Other countries have recognized the importance of linking national and local government Strengthening and formalizing the federal municipal relationship has been a part of President Barack Obama s agenda In 2009 he set up by Executive Order the Office of Urban Affairs which reports directly to the President and the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs He regularly attends the U S Congress of Mayors which represents cities with populations of more than 30 000 Experts say that Obama s urban agenda led to an unprecedented level of interagency collaboration and new initiatives like the Partnership for Sustainable Communities the Affordable Care Act and the Promise Neighborhoods Program all aimed at helping the urban poor Still as the University of Toronto s Richard Florida notes still more can be done to advance urban needs Trudeau has the opportunity to go further by making cities direct partners in crafting and implementing policy solutions on housing infrastructure and the environment In bringing cities to the table Canada and the provinces will be forced to reconsider their governmental relationship to the four in five Canadians who live in urban centres As Robertson puts it The dark ages of cities without resources and jurisdiction isn t going to serve us in the 21 st century BCMC is hopeful that the Trudeau government truly wants to build a strong partnership with cities An institutional structure will help Alexandra Flynn is a PhD candidate and adjunct professor at York University s Osgoode Hall Law School Follow her at alexandraeflynn photo by Alex Guibord Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts SPACING vs MULCAIR What the NDP would do for Toronto and Canadian cities Overhaul or demolish 24 Sussex Urban forestry and the greening of Canadian cities

  • Montreal's Wastewater Treatment, Part I - A History of Problems - Spacing Montreal
    too long for one blog entry but one can get a sense of it all by reading through the newspaper headlines that appeared over the duration of the project 1964 Sewage plant site Marked 1967 Construction of wastewater treatment plant to cost 131 000 000 1968 Roxboro residents warned don t swim in the Back River 1969 Town of Mount Royal against city on new sewage plant 1970 Clean air group claims sewage project Waste of Money 1971 Montreal s sewage treatment plan probed further by Quebec 1971 Montreal to build 300 000 000 sewage disposal plant 1973 Quebec tells Montreal to accelerate work on sewage system 1974 Quick start to sewer plan urged 1974 Pollution ratings close eight more area beaches 1974 Montreal s 500 000 000 sewage clean up 1975 Executive committee seeks tender control 1975 Quebec to pay half Montreal s sewage bill 1976 Economic woes threaten metro sewage line work 1976 Sewage plant metro delayed 1976 Is the Saint Lawrence an open sewer 1977 Province suspends sewage project 1977 Sewage contracts stopped by Montreal 1977 Costly sewer system simply shifts the problem 1978 Back River Clean by 1986 1978 Our sewage scandal big plans but still little action 1979 First phase completed of Montreal s 1 2 billion sewage clean up 1979 240 million sewer line awaits as city argues with suburbs 1980 Time to take the plunger 1983 Montreal wants Quebec action on huge southern sewer line 1985 Dumping sewage into our rivers there s light at the end of the tunnel 1985 Sewage pipe polluting 20km of river experts 1986 Boat will tour St Lawrence sewer dumps 1987 Push of button officially starts sewage plant 1987 Montreal sewage plant called oversized substandard 1988 Not cleaned up yet 1989 Waste spills into river after plant breakdown 1990 Sewage plans running late completion set back to 94 by problems You get the idea Completion and Beyond Finally by 1998 all portions of the interceptor network had been completed and was being used to transfer most of the island s sewage to the treatment facility Being grossly over budget and over schedule the original plan to introduce secondary treatment never came Having already been considered obsolete during its conception today s plant is in dire need of upgrading if it s to match the expectations of the 21st century An announcement was made last year that Montreal would be seeking 200 million to help convert the plant into an ozonation treatment facility The conversion would make it the largest city in the world to be using this more efficient process but so far details have been vague and it s questionable as to how and when all this might happen But despite the fact the existing plant is behind the times in terms of treatment it does do an adequate job of handling large amounts of wastewater As well the large diameter interceptors can usually accommodate heavy rainfalls which means a lower percentage of raw sewage ends
