« L'Outaouais compte un très grand nombre de gens qui arrivent de l'extérieur et ils n'ont souvent pas les clés pour bien comprendre la région. J'ai voulu les rendre accessibles. »

En publiant prochainement l'ouvrage L'autre Outaouais, Guide de découverte du patrimoine, l'historienne Manon Leroux n'offrira pas que des clés, mais bien un trousseau complet, une véritable bible du patrimoine régional de 400 pages à l'intérieur de laquelle aucun village de l'Outaouais n'aura été ignoré.

Launched mid-June in 2015, the PMP's activities have included dancing lessons, workshops on body image and healthy eating, as well as a story-telling hour and a picnic event. PMP organizers estimate at least 40 to 50 families have been part of this years activities.
