Canada Denies its Aeroplanes Poo on People

By Gary Cutlack on at

An outbreak of poo falling on people in Canada is no nearer to being explained, with the country's aviation coordinator telling a furious public that the human excrement rain is not being dumped out of aeroplane toilets.

In total, Transport Canada has received 18 complaints of mysterious and seemingly human buckets of poo being dumped on people going about their business. The first reported case was from a woman in British Columbia who said she got brown-slimed through her car sunroof, with this opening the floodgates for similar claims of a "brownish discharge" raining across the region.

There is the known phenomena of "blue ice" where leaky plane toilets freeze at altitude then defrost and rain slabs of bleachy waste below, but Transport Canada said: "The department’s review has concluded that these incidents do not meet the description of blue ice and are therefore not aviation-related."

So there must be some other reason for sewerage raining on the Canadians. [Guardian]
