Turtle S.O.S.: Save Our Shells!

Categories: 

Trouble in paradise.

It's June and that means those crazy turtles are once again roaming dirt side roads and busy highways alike; intent on finding mates, water and good nesting places as they have always done, paying no mind to the deadly wheels zooming past. I stop for a lot of turtles at this time of the year and so far we have all lived to fight another day. However I have never seen a turtle stuck in the bone-dry and baking-hot rink at the Luskville Community Centre before. Bad turtle terrain for sure.

Current Situation:

The Québec residual materials management strategy includes a progressive reduction and an eventual a 'ban' of organic material from municipal landfills by 2020. Municipalities that comply with the policy are eligible for funding to help offset the costs. As with the Municipality of Pontiac, many municipalities have chosen to pass resolutions to initiate door-to-door collection, with costs paid for by the residents.

It's smooth and it's quiet with internet access, a 36" flat screen TV and reclining seats and it leaves Allumette Island at 10 minutes to 5 am every day. This is the new coach that runs Route 148 and you can be on it. This week, riders taking the Campeau Bus Line to the city were treated to a brand-new luxury coach, a demonstration vehicle in service before the permanent vehicle becomes available in about a weeks time.

Jetez un coup d'oeil à votre boîte aux lettres.  Une nouvelle impression de la carte de la municipalité de Pontiac sera en circulation dans quelques semaines, montrant tous les quartiers et les détails compliqués des routes et des chemins de notre municipalité, avec les chemins existants le long des plages.  Cette carte a été créée pour remplacer l'ancienne version qui n'est plus à jour.

Watch your mail boxes! A brand new map of the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP) will be on its way you within the next few weeks. Showing the entire area of the municipality as well as details of the more complicated street systems in villages and along the beaches, the map was created to replace a much older black and white version that had become obsolete.

En conduisant ma voiture de Shawville vers Quyon, j'ai remarqué que le panneau d'avertissement pour les dangers du feu avait disparu de l'intersection du chemin Clarendon et de la route 148.  On ne l'a pas enlevé pour une simple réparation, il est bien parti pour de bon.
