Can't you smell that smell? Sewage spilled onto the property of the Grind and Brew cafe in Iqaluit on the afternoon of June 18. Brian Twerdin, co-owner of the Grind and Brew, noticed the leak and called the City of Iqaluit dispatch service immediately. “No, not good for business,” Twerdin said. The stench has wafted throughout the surrounding neighbourhood and a thick black puddle sits in front of the cafe. The cause of the sewage leak is unknown but Twerdin said a city crew responded quickly. “I assume they’re trying to pump it out,” he said. Iqaluit's director of public works, Keith Couture, said at a May 20 city council meeting that the city must replace its sewage lines. Couture said at the time that Iqaluit's sewer system has never been upgraded, and replacing the city's entire sewer system would cost upwards of $30 million. (PHOTO BY DAVID MURPHY)
