AstroPontiac aims to build astronomy park in Pontiac

Stephan Paape remembers seeing the twinkle in his daughter’s eye after she discovered the bumpy surface of the moon through a telescope lens.

To peer into the “inky black background of space really puts our own place and the Earth’s place in the universe into perspective,” he said.

Paape, the president of the not-for-profit AstroPontiac, hopes to raise $12,500 by mid-August to build one of the first astronomy parks in the national capital region. The park is expected to be located in Pontiac, Que., roughly a 30-minute drive northwest of Ottawa.

Pontiac Severed

Luskville Sector — Following yesterdays Canada Day tornado microburst that left dozens of Pontiac homes damaged, the Municipality was dealt a new blow when another section of Highway 148 was washed out near the Luskville Recreation Park effectively cutting east and west Pontiac off from each other.

The collapse occurred in the eastbound lane on the south side of the highway around midday and there were no reported injuries related to the washout.  Ministry of Transport Québec officials are on scene assessing the damage and have not yet worked out a timetable for the length of the repairs.  Motorists coming from the east-end of Ottawa are being advised to detour north via Highway 5 to Wakefield, then take the 366 through Masham to chemin d’Eardley, continuing towards chemin Eardley-Masham to the 148 in South Onslow, ward 3 in the Municipality of Pontiac.

Drivers coming from Ottawa’s West-end are advised to avail themselves of the new Ferry in Quyon to reach wards 1,2 and 3.  Unfortunately, the very badly warn-out logging road between Pontiac and lac La Pêche is the only northerly route available to detour around the current road closure.  The Municipality has literally been cut in two by a small section of road and the excruciatingly arduous and dangerous detours caused by this closure — the latest in a string of similar road collapses that have plagued the Municipality of Pontiac for several years.

Sources say that the Municipality had known of the potential for problems with the culvert passing under the highway and had brought the matter to the attention of the MTQ again last week.  Coupled with yesterdays tornado storm, Pontiac’s first responders are very busy ensuring the public’s safety and cleaning up the mess brought on by the fierce storm.  Today’s Road closure only adds to Pontiac’s woes.

With the arrival of the summer season, area businesses will no doubt be hurt by the disruptions created by this vital artery being severed once again.

Traversier de Quyon: date prévisionnelle d'ouverture maintenant le 13 juin 2014

Categories: 

Depuis notre dernière mise à jour, nous avons surmonté plusieurs obstacles, de fournitures électriques encore notre retard principale.

Nous avons eu une étape importante samedi dernier que le câble est maintenant relié à la borne de l'Ontario. Nous avons couru le câble à l'aide du McColgan II qui dispose désormais de deux unités d'entraînement. L'unité d'entraînement de la McColgan I a été transplanté sur l'Arc de McColgan II.

Tous les panneaux électriques ont été montés et beaucoup de fil a été courir à travers l'ensemble du ferry. Beaucoup de lumières et panneaux sont raccordés par jour.

Toute la plomberie est terminée et toutes les pompes de cale ont été câblé.

Personne ne veut traverser la rivière plus que nous. Merci pour votre patience.
