More than 40 wreaths were laid by those representing family members or organizations, including Pontiac MNA Andre Fortin.

It takes more than mud to deter a good gardener and the afternoon of October 16 proved it. Approximately 30 students, parents, teachers and community members assembled to help plant 1,000 red and white tulip bulbs in a new bed created on the front lawn of Onslow Elementary in Quyon. The garden will bloom as part of Canada's 150th celebrations next year.

Appel McCann

Categories: 

Le Municipalité de Pontiac fournit les précisions suivantes:

Bonjour,

J’ai reçu quelques commentaires au sujet de la description du dernier développement dans le dossier de M.McCann

Alors que ton site par d’une décision d’appel, cela n’est pas tout à fait juste. Tel qu’on peut voir sur les documents de cours et le jugement, l’enjeu était une « Requête en suspension de l’ordonnance de l’exécution provisoire nonobstant appel »

Cette requête a été rejette et en même temps on a annoncé la date de l’audience sur l’appel. La validité de l’appel ne faisait pas partir des plaidoyers (seul l’avocat de M. McCann a plaidé d’ailleurs avant que le juge prenne sa décision), seulement la validité de la requête pour suspendre le jugement de mai (donc la suspension du jugement le rendant inhabile à siéger) … Nous avons vérifié avec notre avocat qui a confirmé que M.McCann avait automatiquement droit à un appel

The Maison de la Famille Quyon (MdlFQ) held its Annual General Assembly on Wednesday, June 29 at 7 pm at their building on Clarendon Street in Quyon. As usual, director general Catherine Beaudet wrote a beautiful foreword to the AGM notes. Here it is in full.

"Last spring, the children from the play groups made a collective art painting; the maste piece that you can admire on the cover page [above]. A metaphor between these colourful flowers growing and the Quyon Family Centre comes to my mind…

At the May 17 council meeting, a draft bylaw was passed, proposing to borrow $1.5 million in order to finally replace the aging “Beach Barn”, the Lions Hall on Ch. Ferry in Quyon. 

Pontiac 2020.ca asked communications agent for the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP), Dominic Labrie some more questions about the bylaw and the amended plans for the much-needed community center.

1.5 MILLION — QUYON COMMUNITY CENTER

Categories: 

Dear Ratepayer,

I wish to ensure that you are informed about the fact that Municipal Council has passed a borrowing bylaw in the amount of $1.5 Million to build a new community center in the Quyon sector (bylaw 05-16).

This loan will cost you $18 more per $100,000 of property assessment for the next 15 or 20 years. At first glance, it doesn’t seem much, but the expenses are accumulating; in the fall of 2015 borrowing bylaw of $2 million for the repair of Mountain Road, in spring 2016 another borrowing bylaw of $2 million for the repair of Dominican Rd and other roads. If you start adding up all of these loans, here’s the approximate impact to your wallet :

1.5 MILLION — CENTRE COMMUNAUTAIRE A QUYON

Categories: 

Chers contribuables,

Je vous envoie ce petit mot afin d’assurer que vous soyez informés du fait que le conseil municipal a voté en faveur d’un règlement d’emprunt de $1.5 million pour la construction d’un nouveau centre communautaire dans le secteur de Quyon (Règlement 05-16).

Cet emprunt vous coûtera $18 de plus en taxes pour chaque tranche de $100,000 d’évaluation de vote propriété. A prime abord ça ne semble pas beaucoup d’argent mais les dépenses s’accumulent; à l’automne 2015 un règlement d’emprunt de 2 Millions pour la préparation du chemin de la Montagne, en mai 2016 un règlement de 2 millions pour la réparation du ch. des Dominicains et autre divers chemins.  Si on additionne le tout, voici l’impact approximatif sur votre portefeuille:

Family Centre cuts back hours to compensate for funding cutbacks

Everyone understands austerity: paring back luxuries and comforts to the bare essentials in order to make it through hard financial times.

But what does it mean when essential services that help some of our most vulnerable population must endure reduced funding?

This summer, the Maison de la Famille Quyon (the Quyon Family Centre) is closing one day per week for the month of June to handle some serious funding cutbacks. The Centre will be closed on Mondays, leaving staff and patrons to manage with a four-day work week.

Not just a line from a song: at long last, much-anticipated bottles from Quyon's Domaine de Pontiac Village's first vendage (harvest) are on sale now.

Owners Maude-Emmanuel Lambert and Pavel Kohl planted their first vines on their 50 acre property on Ch. Cemetary in 2007 and have been adding plants and varieties since then. The vineyard now covers approximately three and a half acres.

So ask yourself: do you feel ducky? Well, do you?

If so, find yourself a member of the Quyon Lionettes who can sell you a ticket for the annual Duck Race, to be held on June 5th.

One thousand ducks will be launched in spectacular style from a front-end loader off the Egan Street bridge at 2 p.m. and the winner named at the Clarendon Street bridge approximately 30 or so minutes later, depending on water levels.
