1904 - Is the City Water Safe?
The Montreal aldermen who wish to keep the result of any analysis of the city water secret, show more acquaintance with than faith in the water. Just what good it will do the tax-payers to pay for an analysis of their drinking water, if they are not to be told how it comes out, is not clear. But then neither is the water clear as a rule. Still something may be learned by watching the subsequent habits of the aldermen who are permitted to see the secret report. If they shun water as a beverage after having perused this document, it will be just as well for their constituents to take the hint - and not the water.
