Pancakes and magic: Breakfast with Santa

The jolly jingle of Christmas bells mingled with the merry cling-clang on forks on plates at the annual Parents of the Municipality of Pontiac (PMP) Breakfast with Santa event on Saturday December 2nd.

The Community Centre in Luskville was filled with kids and parents enjoying a selection of seasonal crafts, a reading corner and of course a delicious spread of fresh fruit, juice, yoghurt and nice thick pancakes drenched with local maple syrup.

Mayor and head elf Joanne Labadie was hard at work, serving up healthy chunks of fresh banana, cantaloupe and honeydew melon. 

Of course the star of the show was that famous old man in red who was delighted to hear the gift wishes of the young people of Pontiac.

You want a goat? No, a boat!

Kids also had their faces painted and made gift tags and ornaments for the tree and wrote letters to Santa. 

The PMP have been hard at work creating new and exciting sport events and cultural activities designed for the under 5's. Support their tremendous community initiatives: they really are the sweetest people ever.

Inès Pontiroli  (Ward 4)

During the last mandate I noticed that it happened that we lost sight of the projects that were underway because there is a lot of moving pieces happening in the Municipality. 

I would like to see is implementation of a Project Management System which will track all the projects that are underway.  We’ll be able to see exactly what the status is, what are the issues going on with each of the projects, have a bit of control of the costs and the risk management aspect of it.

Question 3: As councilor for the Municipality of Pontiac how do you intend to communicate with and inform the community about the decisions that you make?

Pierre Gervais (Ward 5)

As stated earlier, my number one priority is to provide a voice to the residents and ensure that there issues are brought to council.  Just as important is communicating back to them the final outcome.

Question 2: As Councilor for the Municipality of Pontiac in what ways would you encourage and support economic growth in the area?

Bill Twolan (Ward 6)

First of all, to encourage economic growth and development would be to encourage new businesses to set up in the Pontiac.  It’s very difficult right now with the way its set up for commercial property; there’s some in Quyon, there’s a little patch here, and a little patch there.  What we need is an industrial park in the east end, closer to the nucleus of Gatineau and Ottawa.  This is very important also for our population - our young people - to get jobs and find long-term employment.

James Eggleton (Ward 4)

Hello everyone, my name is James Eggleton.  I’m here to represent Ward number 4. 

It’s been since ’79 that I’ve been coming to this area and I think it’s an absolute gem.  It reminds me of my youth.  I always lived in Québec, my family took off to Ontario.  I seemed to be the only one to really appreciate the culture that comes with Québec.

La plupart des Québécois ignorent qu'ils ne sont propriétaires que de la surface de leur terrain. Certaines compagnies peuvent détenir à leur insu des droits sur les ressources contenues dans le sous-sol. Souvent, les citoyens l'apprennent au moment où une compagnie vient leur demander si elle peut entreprendre des travaux dans leur cour.

Bonjour à tous.

Je suis fier de présenter ma candidature afin de me faire réélire en tant que maire de cette municipalité. Au cours des deux termes précédents, nous avons effectués d’énormes gains quant à l’avancement de cette région et en faisant de cette municipalité un endroit où les gens sont heureux de vivre et d’élever leurs familles dans un contexte rural.

Je me suis présenté au conseil pour la première fois en 1980, et la présente élection revêt une importance particulière, dû au fait que les contribuables doivent cette année répondre à une question déterminante.
