De moins en moins de fermes au pays


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.

He is a salt and pepper coloured schnauzer- mix of black white and grey and a splash of tan hairs on his shoulders that may disappear with the next haircut. He has been fixed and also has a little liver spot on his belly. He is around 11-13 pounds.His tail has been docked to about 2" and wags like crazy when he is happy or playing, he still has his dew claws.

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.”

NORTH ONLSOW – Police continue their manhunt for the prime suspect in Tricia Boisvert’s murder, the Ottawa native abducted in the bustling South-West neighbourhood of La Petite-Bourgogne in Montreal, and whose body was later discovered in the Quyon sector of the Municipality of Pontiac last Thursday, six days after the drama began.

Le corps de Tricia Boisvert retrouvé


Ce que tous ses proches redoutaient vient de survenir: Tricia Boisvert a été retrouvée, morte.

La macabre découverte a été effectuée ce matin en Outaouais, dans la région du Pontiac, à l'ouest de Gatineau. 

«Ce sont des moyens d'enquêteurs qui nous ont menés à cet endroit», explique l'agent Danny Richer, porte-parole de la police de Montréal, qui refuse de dévoiler des détails sur le lieu où la dépouille a été trouvée et les éléments découverts sur la scène. 

«Ces détails sont très importants pour la suite de l'enquête», précise-t-il.

Le suspect lui, Philippe Steele-Morin, 30 ans, est toujours au large . . .

Incendie mortel à Pontiac


Un incendie a fait deux morts, samedi soir, non loin de Quyon, dans la municipalité de Pontiac.

Les deux victimes - un homme et une femme - ont perdu la vie dans leur appartement situé au sous-sol du 3122, chemin Wilson. À l'arrivée des pompiers, vers 22h, les flammes ravageaient l'ensemble de maison unifamiliale.

Le brasier aurait pris naissance au sous-sol, selon les premiers témoignages recueillis par les autorités.

La femme, inconsciente, a été retrouvée par les sapeurs à quelques pas de l'escalier menant vers l'extérieur. Des manoeuvres de réanimation ont immédiatement été tentées. La chaleur se dégageant de l'incendie était toutefois trop intense pour porter secours à l'homme; le corps de ce dernier n'a pu être récupéré que vers 3 h 30.

Santa Claus Parade Brings Christmas Cheer to the Municipality of Pontiac



Thomas Soulière

The bone-snapping cold temperatures last Saturday night could not put a chill on the Municipality of Pontiac’s annual Santa Claus Parade held in the Quyon sector, as a very warm and jolly Saint Nick brought joy to all the little hearts that came out to meet him.

Helping to guide Santa along the parade route were the brave firefighters of the Pontiac Fire Department, who handed out treats to everyone along the parade route, while making sure the path was clear for Santa.  As the fire trucks blew their sirens and their flashing lights brightened up nearby buildings, a group of local organizations and residents followed with beautifully decorated floats, cheerfully waving at the crowds.
