I haven't found any news about it yet but there is a weird smell all around Downtown (well at least Place des Arts, lower Main and Concordia). The smell resembles that of dead animals (trust me, I know), but no dead animal could smell that far, so it's probably industrial. Any guesses?

 

Same thing appears to have happened in Toronto a couple of weeks ago:

A similar (yet less disgusting) mystery was solved in New York in 2009 by mapping 311 calls:

Montreal is a much less dense city though and most people here don't call 311 for these things.

I was smelling something weird on the Metropolitan around 1600 today... between the two 15's. I thought it was a truck I was next to but it was a container not a tanker or anything. Dunno if I'd call it animals, it reminded me of long-stagnant water.

 

Might just be something in the sewers.

 

Downtown Montreal is finally making it in the rarefied world of downtown metropoliii, by being stinky :P

Est-ce ton premier printemps au Québec !?

 

Comme on disait par chez nous (rive-nord) :"ça sens Ste-Anne !"

(pour Ste-Anne-des-Plaines)

 

Peut-être qu'habituellement, les odeurs de fumier ne se rendent pas jusqu'à Montréal, mais le vent de ce soir est peut-être du nord vers le sud et ainsi, l'odeur du fumier se rend jusqu'à Downtown.

 

Bref, à chaque printemps, les fermiers étendent le fumier sur leurs terres. Maintenant que ça fait deux jours qu'il ne pleut pas (incroyable!) il y a moins de risque de ruissellement dans la nappe phréatique, c'est donc probablement safe d'étendre le fumier.

The West Island smells like manure right now, really really strong too. Reminds me of my days at the cottage as a kid, "pee yew!" :rotfl:

 

I am wondering if you can drive your car around and burn less fuel by burning the methane in the fumes...
