Being a Breakfast Club volunteer is one of those things that makes you feel so amazingly good about the whole wide world, it should be on everyone's list. It's more than simply feeding kids; although that is a massive thing in itself. It's the friendships built through working as a team, the fun found in new encounters with savvy six-year-olds and the knowledge that you are making a difference to little lives in a big, big way. I can't recommend it enough.

Take step back in time as you “Savour the Pontiac”


2013 marks the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passage up the Ottawa River in search of navigable waterways and this is being commemorated at the 6th edition of the local producers fair, Savour the Pontiac.

The event will see the Quyon waterfront and Lions Hall transformed into a 17th century marketplace where local business owners, artists, artisans and producers will be dressed in period costumes.

Have the amalgamation discussions gasped their last, dying breath?


Since February of this year, every issue of the (Pontiac) Journal has published something on the topic of the MRC Pontiac’s study on the possibility of amalgamating some of its municipalities. Whether in the countless articles, letters to the editors, advertisements, and editorials, no other single topic in the Journal’s history has occupied as much newsprint space.

Pontiac: funeste fusion


Dans le Pontiac, les francophones sont depuis plus d'un siècle menacés d'assimilation. Ils ne restent majoritaires que dans le secteur formé par les municipalités contiguës de Fort-Coulonge, Mansfield-et-Pontefract et Île-du-Grand-Calumet. Or, si la fusion envisagée des 18 municipalités de la MRC Pontiac se réalise, ce qui reste de francophonie dans l'ouest de l'Outaouais risque d'être mis en minorité pour de bon. C'est un scénario qu'il faut à tout prix écarter!
