The new site is a step forward for the Store, which has been operating from a small room in the corner of the Beach Barn, that was proving ineffective in a number of ways.

A historic handover occurred on April 7: the official transfer of ownership of the Quyon Recreation Park by community group Quyon Ensemble (QE) to the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP). The land, worth approximately $322,000, was symbolically sold by QE to the MoP for a dollar. "For the last couple of years we've been in negotiations," Roger Larose, mayor of the MoP, explained. "As a municipality, we've been wanting to have a recreation park in Luskville and one in Quyon. Through negotations, they [QE] were open to sit down and talk about it."

Trouble in Paradise

I live on the highway in Luskville between Parker Rd. and Nugent Rd. which is Deer Death Central at this time of the year. A few years ago, I rang the Ministere de Transport Quebec (MTQ) and after being transferred six times (I'm not joking), we had extra "deer crossing" signs installed here and there.
