Affaissement de la 148 : une voie de contournement sera complétée aujourd’hui

Categories: 

ICI Ottawa Gatineau

Transports Québec devrait terminer vendredi l'aménagement d'une voie de contournement autour du trou de 10 m de diamètre sur la route 148 près de Luskville.

Le nouveau chemin de déviation sera beaucoup plus court que celui que devaient emprunter les automobilistes jeudi, un détour de près d'une heure.

Again with a Sinkhole on the 148

In June 2011, heavy rains washed out a portion of Route 148 between Luskville and Quyon, forcing traffic to detour along narrow gravel roads for more than two months. At the time I noted that had the washout occured east of Parker Road rather than west of it, no detour would have been possible: westbound traffic would have had to double back to Gatineau, and eastbound traffic would have had to take the Eardley-Masham Road or the Quyon Ferry.

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.

Les feux à ciel ouvert interdits en forêt

La Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU) lance une interdiction de faire des feux à ciel ouvert en forêt ou à proximité, et cela, en raison des conditions qui sévissent présentement.

Cette mesure, qui est entrée en vigueur hier, vise plusieurs régions du Québec.

En Outaouais, l'interdiction ne touche toutefois que le Pontiac et la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau.

Limite de vitesse trop élevée?

Depuis longtemps, la route 148 entre Gatineau et Fort-Coulonge est considérée dangereuse. Camions de transport, voitures, motos, vélos, piétons et animaux sauvages se croisent dans des zones où les vitesses permises varient de 50 à 90 kilomètres à l'heure. Hier, à quelques mètres de la scène d'un autre accident mortel dans sa municipalité, le maire de Pontiac a parlé de ce «coin à problèmes», et a invité le ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) à réviser l'utilisation de cette route essentielle et mal aimée dans la région.

De moins en moins de fermes au pays

Categories: 

Alors que le nombre de fermes diminue au Canada, leur taille augmente et leurs exploitants se font de plus en plus âgés, révèle un rapport rendu public mardi par Statistique Canada.

L'agence, qui se fonde sur les données du Recensement de l'agriculture de 2011, a répertorié 205 730 fermes en 2011 au pays, ce qui représente un déclin de 74 000 exploitations agricoles en vingt ans.

Pendant ce temps, depuis 1991, la superficie agricole moyenne a augmenté pour passer de 198 à 778 acres

Un des auteurs du rapport et analyste en agriculture, Martin Beaulieu, a expliqué qu'une des raisons de cet accroissement de la taille des fermes est la mise en commun des terres à mesure que les agriculteurs prennent leur retraite.

Mother of suspected killer Steele-Morin begs him to come home

Says she’s faced death threats since Tricia Boisvert’s homicide in Montreal

By Meghan Hurley, OTTAWA CITIZEN February 6, 2014
OTTAWA — The mother of a Gatineau drug dealer accused of killing 36-year-old Tricia Boisvert in her Montreal apartment has one message for her son: Come home.

Police have accused Philippe Steele-Morin, 30, of killing Boisvert in her Montreal apartment on Jan 17. Her body was found a week later in a wooded area near Quyon, Que.

“I just want it all over. I just want it to end,” the suspect’s mother, Rita Steele, told the Citizen. “It’s not fair to his kids. It’s definitely not fair to me.”

Steele said she knew something was wrong when Gatineau police called her the Saturday after Boisvert disappeared to ask where her son was.

A few days later, Steele found out that Montreal police had named her son as the main suspect in Boisvert’s death. Police have said they believe Steele-Morin was the last person to see Boisvert alive.

“Something went wrong because Philip is not a killer. It doesn’t make sense to me,” Steele said. “I just wish he would come out, because then we would have answers.”
