The citizens of Mansfield and the surrounding area were surprised, this Tuesday July 7, by a military exercise which took place on the side of the old Davidson sawmill. Noises from helicopters were heard and several citizens seemed to have received no notice to this effect, as did the media.

The Mansfield-et-Pontefract city council confirmed having received several calls and complaints on the subject, late in the evening and overnight. According to a communication that reached the Canadian Armed Forces, the municipality said that citizens did not appreciate not being informed of its operations which took place during the evening and at night.

The noise was not concentrated at the installations of the Davidson mill, but for miles around, according to various comments from citizens. The municipality of Mansfield-et-Pontefract has asked that this kind of incident never happen again.
