Brightly coloured fluorescent liquid seen flowing into the water along Boulevard Champlain this past June 14, 2011

Quebec City resident Jennifer Molson takes her dog for a walk every day beside the water along Boulevard Champlain, but what she saw on June 14 was disturbing and shocking. Flushing out from a drainpipe and into the mighty St. Lawrence was a fluorescent green substance, and Molson’s first thought was that someone was polluting the river with radiator fluid.
