I will be on CBC News Montreal this evening commenting on a story about organized crime illegally dumping toxic soil on agricultural lands and near water bodies in the Laurentians.
The measures announced today by Québec and Montreal are a step in the right direction but will not correct the situation or make Montreal a leader in toxic soil management.
Here I am asking why no one has been held accountable after years of investigations by the provincial police that seem to have gone nowhere.
The Green Party of Québec supports the implementation of a provincial level environmental police force that would be trained and equipped to prevent environmental crimes from taking place and arresting the eco-criminals who choose to break our environmental protection laws.

I was on CBC News tonight commenting on revelations that organized crime has been dumping contaminated soil on agricultural land in the Laurentians. While Québec and Montréal have announced positive steps to crack down on the practice more action needs to be taken.My part is begins at 2:10
