The 2nd period continued unchanged until Matt Labrosse,...

UPDATED: Questions from the public >
The second of two All Candidates Meetings took place last Sunday at the Luskville Community Centre for candidates running in wards 4, 5 and 6.
The candidates representing Ward 4 were incumbent councilor Inès Pontiroli and newcomer James Eggleton; for Ward 5, incumbent Brian Middlemiss and newcomer Pierre Gervais; and in ward 6 veteran councilor Bill Twolan. Incumbent councilor Jean Amyotte did not participate.
*Please note that candidates did not have the right of rebuttal as per the parameters that were set up by the organizers.
Inès, in the past council term you voted against a committee which consists of a group of interested citizens whose mission it is to preserve and enhance the quality of life in our community by working closer with our Municipal elected Council. All of the Councilor Candidates at last Saturday’s meeting stated that they would work with the committee.
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.
That would be the thing I would do.
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.
To communicate, I would propose to Council to examine the feasibility of creating a website accessible by all residents. They could go in, and by completing specific fields, provide details as to their question or issue. If appropriate, it would be brought to council for consideration and voted on.
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.
