As someone who lives on Baie road and heads up to Quyon often, it really starts to hit how long Alary road has been washed out — and how annoying it is to detour around to head up to Quyon, Shawville etc.

How annoying it must be for my Father to detour around while delivering the mail, and anyone else who lives down here, anyone coming to the dragway or down to their cottage.  AND especially the farmers who live directly on Alary road.

However I quickly realized my annoyance and other people’s are small compared to the importance of this road if anything were to happen to the 148.

A few years ago the 148 had washed out and Alary, Baie and Damas Perrier roads were used as detours. 

Now let that sink in: for over 8 MONTHS we’ve had NO emergency route!

Why has it taken this long for the Municipality of Pontiac to fix a side road?

When I was a know-nothing student in Australia, we were shown the Terry Fox T.V. movie (The Terry Fox Story, 1983) for religion class.... 

As I knew nothing about almost anything at the time, I didn't even understand it was all true.

Now I know a few more things and now Terry Fox is and will always be my true hero.

Part historical drama, part musical comedy and 100 percent heart, the play takes place in 1944 at the famed Cantley Picnic.

There is fresh and there is local... and then there is something that elevates the concept one step beyond. Audrey Lapointe (above) is all of these things and more. The young entrepreneur, based in Gatineau, is growing seasonal crops including garlic, potatoes, herbs and a variety of vegetables from her half-acre plot based at Élevage Fabie in Quyon.
