These service outages been a frequent occurence lately ... it seems the STM's application of software patches to its computers aren't up to snuff...

For nearly two months now, the stm has taken to depositing industrial-strength urinal deodorants around the ticket halls inside metro stations. Their smell is revolting and noxious and really queer considering there had been no odour needing deodorizing in the first place. The operator probably should stick to copying the ratp, whose deodorizer decades ago smelled more like incense

The fib to this signage is that it's not at all an emergency brake. The alarm actually instructs, signals to the metro driver to remain halted at the next station if not already stopped at one.

According to a fellow passenger's recollection, it just may be that the cameras on board are being deployed for entrapment of even the authority's well-intentioned passenger's
