The flood last month took its toll on many riverside properties and the Lions Club hall on Ferry Road in Quyon was no exception. Indeed, the parking area of the hall frequently goes underwater in early spring. Now, pending the demolition of the building and the construction of a new one, Pontiac2020.ca asked the very busy Dominic Labrie, communication agent for the Municipality of Pontiac, three quick questions about the matter.

Trouble in Paradise

I live on the highway in Luskville between Parker Rd. and Nugent Rd. which is Deer Death Central at this time of the year. A few years ago, I rang the Ministere de Transport Quebec (MTQ) and after being transferred six times (I'm not joking), we had extra "deer crossing" signs installed here and there.
