20 students rather than 18 in the Council
Following the reports made by CHIP concerning the misunderstanding that occurred in the organization of the Youth Council at the beginning of the month, where the MRC Pontiac accidentally substituted the student chosen by the municipality of Campbell’s Bay for another. The Warden Jane Toller confirmed that the MRC has implemented a solution to the issue which is to include all parties involved. A similar situation also occurred in L’Isle-aux-Allumettes. To remedy the situation, the MRC Pontiac once again opted to include the second student as part of the youth council.
