The situation is still being closely monitored in regards to the levels of the Ottawa River, notably in the municipality of Mansfield-et-Pontefract. The Emergency Services has also visited the municipality to try to plan various precautions as the water levels could increase by 15 centimeters today.

Already several homes are struggling with flooding in their basements and some homes are becoming increasingly isolated. The municipality recommends that residents living in this type of situation take the necessary moves to ensure their safety or to contact with the municipality for help. Sand bags are available behind the municipal offices or at the municipality’s sand depot.

The meeting of the Mansfield municipal council that was scheduled tonight has been postponed to next week since the council will meet this evening to deliberate over the different measures to take if necessary. Also remember not to drink water from the artesian wells if they may have been contaminated by river water. Stay tuned to CHIP 101.9 for more information.

The Institut de la statistique du Québec provides a socio-economic portrait of the region

The Institut de la statistique du Québec yesterday released the ninth edition of the Panorama of Quebec Regions. This book provides a socio-economic portrait of the 17 administrative regions and the regional county municipalities (MRCs) that constitute them.

Fourteen areas are analyzed according to the most recent statistics. These include demographics, living conditions, health, education, labor market, land value and other data.

Results more specific to the Pontiac will be analysed in the coming days. For now, the book points out that the region of the Outaouais is less valued because; GDP is growing less rapidly than in the rest of Quebec, disposable income per capita is growing at a slower pace, and the percentage of low-income earning families is one of the highest. It is also noted that the average value of single-family dwellings is growing at a slower pace than in the rest of Quebec.

A direct link to the 2017 Regional Panorama is available here.

Activities of candidates in the prefecture in the region

Over the past few weeks, the two Warden candidates in the Pontiac MRC, former Member of National assembly Charlotte L’Écuyer and Mayor of Fort-Coulonge Raymond Durocher, have attended several activates and meetings in the region.

To that end, Charlotte L’Écuyer posted on Facebook her opinion concerning the actions of the government following the spring floods. She explains that people still have no answers about the possibility of repairing, rebuilding or finding another home ... their lives are still ’’ on hold ’’ she adds that no matter what the government says, people affected by floods need to know their options before July ends.

In the coming weeks, CHIP 101.9 will present a complete assessment of the candidatures for the municipal elections to be held on November 5.
