PQ officially gives up on Bill 14

Categories: 

The PQ’s Bill 14, a proposed intensified language law, is now fodder for the paper shredder.

PQ cabinet minister Diane De Courcy, who was steering the dossier, conceded Thursday that there would be no further attempt to advance the project, considering that their minority government failed to get sufficient opposition support for the legislation.

Somptueux édifice au Mexique: Marois et Catania voisins de condos

Categories: 

Avant d'acheter son luxueux condominium à Nuevo Vallarta au Mexique, la première ministre Pauline Marois savait que l'entrepreneur Paolo Catania y possédait aussi une somptueuse résidence secondaire, a confirmé un témoin à l'émission Le Négociateur ce matin.

«Je suis allé au mois de février dernier. On a rencontré des vendeurs qui nous ont fait visiter l'endroit. On leur a dit qu'on était québécois et la première chose qu'ils nous ont dite c'est: "la première ministre est venue dernièrement et elle veut s'acheter un condo ici bientôt. Et il y a aussi un dénommé M. Catania (Paolo)"», relate l'homme qui préfère conserver l'anonymat.

Une charte pour la majorité

Categories: 

Tout indique que ce projet de charte des valeurs ne sera pas adopté au cours de la session parlementaire actuelle.

Cela paraît tout simplement impossible.

Le projet de loi sur les mines a été battu la semaine dernière. Il n’était pas impensable de négocier son adoption avec les partis d’opposition, malgré le caractère controversé de la personnalité de la ministre des Ressources naturelles, Martine Ouellet, et malgré des divergences importantes entre les partis.

Question 4: As councilor for the Municipality of Pontiac what is the first thing you would immediately begin to change?

Categories: 

 

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?

Categories: 

 

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?

Categories: 

 

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.
