Montreal cleans up civic corruption


Montreal interim mayor Michael Applebaum had had enough when yesterday at 3:15 pm he commented on the corruption that, according to the Charbonneau Commission, infests governments across the province. “We have to take action to clean up this mess,” Applebaum said. “These people are like leeches and curs, they are ruining the city and if they won’t go away we’ll have to clean them out.”

Unfortunately Applebaum, an Anglophone, made his statement in English. When the municipal employees fed the words “leeches” and “curs” into Google they came up with “Reservoir Dogs”. So … they figured the mayor wanted to open the reservoir and clean the city.
