Montreal Monday: security surveillance, super-sized sewer, and name this job


Each Monday, we bring you some of the popular posts from our sister blog, Spacing Montréal. We’ll keep an eye open for topics and discussions that are pertinent to current public space issues in Toronto. 

• Over the weekend, Alanah Heffez joined a tour of Montreal’s waste water treatment facility and discovered why it’s the third largest in the world.

• As a bonus to her water treatment post, Alanah posted the photo above, taken during her visit to the plant, and asked readers to name the person’s job.

• KC Bolton profiles Bill Brown, protester of urban electronic surveillance, and examines the ubiquity of security cameras in Montreal — including in the promenade beneath the Complexe Desjardins office building, where security staff recently attempted to disband a Brown-led Unmonitored Underground City workshop tour.
