In 2013, the Municipality of Pontiac’s council voted to install stop signs in the north and south directions of Terry Fox road at chemin Lavigne near the location of a steep hill in order to slow motorists as they travel a stretch of road which has no sidewalks.  Shortly afterwards, the signs were vandalized and removed by persons unknown, leading drivers to believe that they were no longer required to stop at the intersection.

Categories: 

CBC News | Ottawa

Transport Canada says it will inspect a sunken trailer in the Ottawa River to determine whether it qualifies under law as an "obstacle," but the question of who will remove it remains open.

The abandoned camper trailer was used as an ice fishing hut last winter, but became mostly submerged when the ice melted. 

The top of the trailer can be seen from the end of Chemin Terry Fox, which separates Gatineau from the Municipality of Pontiac. It sits about 100 metres from shore, roughly on the border between the two jurisdictions.

We frequently hear about lives saved by organs from deceased donors, but far less about a quiet but remarkable group: live donors. 

Breckenridge’s Alain David is in his first week of recovery after having his left kidney removed and given to a total stranger whom he will never meet. This decision to undergo the operation was not a spontaneous one.

Breckenridge — Yesterday afternoon I was unfortunate enough to be a witness to another accident on Highway 148 in the Municipality of Pontiac.  At around five after five in the afternoon, a frontal collision occurred at the corner of Eardley Road and Terry Fox involving two single occupant vehicles.  The impact was so violent; one of the cars was thrown back and spun around.

5 trouble spots on Ottawa-area highways

Categories: 

There were six fatal crashes from 2001 to 2010 in a 10 km stretch from Luskville to the River bridge in Quyon, and another three in 2011 that killed seven people. Notable among these has a four-vehicle collision in December 2011 that killed a father and his four-year-old son, as well as the driver of the other vehicle, who police said had crossed the centre line at a curve in the road and crashed head-on with the other vehicle. It was also in 2011 near Luskville that two people were killed when a car struck a bear on a rural Quebec highway and sent the animal crashing into a second vehicle.
