Today, the 19th of October, the remaining concrete and twisted rubbish was scooped off the site of the Beach Barn.

More crunching, but on a different level.

The delicacy these large machinery operators are capable of is quite remarkable.

They did save the Lions Club sign. And a door!

The Beach Barn is dead. Long live the Quyon Community Centre.

June 21 is Canada's National Aboriginal Day (NAD), created to recognize the history, culture and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. According to the Indigenous and Northern Affairs page of Canada.ca website, the Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous Peoples.

Pontiac 2020.ca asked Quyon's Garry Belair, Chief White Owl, now in his fifth year of leadership of the Pontiac Algonkin Outaouais tribe, to explain the significance of the day.
