Le mauvais temps cause une pénurie d’essence dans l’est du pays

Categories: 

Les compagnies pétrolières ne sont pas en mesure pour le moment de dire combien de stations-services sont affectées ou quand un retour à la normale est prévu. Les gérants de ces stations s'arrangent donc tant bien que mal pour satisfaire leur clientèle.

« [Les consommateurs] sont contents parce qu'il faut qu'on charge le prix du suprême, au prix du régulier », explique Marc André Ladouceur, un employé du réseau Ultramar, dans le secteur d'Aylmer à Gatineau.

Mais quand les cuves des stations-service sont vides, les conducteurs n'ont pas le choix de faire le tour des autres points de vente d'essence. Cette situation est particulièrement gênante au moment où des milliers de Canadiens sont sur les routes pour aller célébrer les fêtes de fin d'année en famille.

Gasoline shortages in Ottawa-Gatineau blamed on weather

Categories: 

Distributors are blaming the weather for recent gasoline shortages in the capital region.

Some stations, including Shell and Petro-Canada, said recent storms have disrupted their supply chain of trucks from as far away as Texas.

Pumps started running dry in northwestern Ontario, but the problem has since moved to the Ottawa-Gatineau.area.

Gary Dubeau said he was unable to travel on Christmas Day.

"Well, I wanted to spend time with my family and because of the shortage of gas in my area, there were no stations at all,” he said.

“In (the) Pontiac area it was all closed.”

In the Municipality of Pontiac, we are blessed to have such an amazing place to call our own.  Along with the beautiful scenery, we are also blessed by the scores of great people who call the Municipality of Pontiac their home.  The incredible history of this area, not well known to many, is an endowment that we today must protect and defend.  In the Pontiac, we serve as an example of linguistic and cultural harmony to not only the rest of Québec and Canada, but to the whole world.  Sounds lofty, but I will endeavor to demonstrate that very fact in 2014!

The traditions and heritage of this area are something I have come to understand flow from the people of this area and those who came before.  My own combined family history has my ancestors coming from all parts far and wide within the Outaouais Region, all the way to the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula around 400 hundred years ago.  An entire country was forged by the character of the people who built the Ottawa Valley and the Outaouais, . . .

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.

Many [Ottawa] Citizen readers are responding to the plight of a young Quyon couple who have been denied Quebec social assistance even though neither has been healthy enough to work for a considerable period of time.

To accommodate several offers of cash and food to help Garry Belair, and his wife, Lisa Beausoleil, the Quyon Lions Club has set up a trust fund for donations of money, and food can be dropped off if prior arrangements are made with the club.

Cheques or money orders can be made out to Quyon Lions treasurer Jack Clarke, in trust, and mailed to 1009 Second Concession, Quyon, P.Q., J0X 2V0.
