The financial difficulties of arenas in the Pontiac worry many people. The committee of the Coopérative du Centre de loisir des Draveurs (Fort-Coulonge arena) took advantage of the visit of the member for Pontac, André Fortin, in the studios of CHIP 101.9 to ask him a question.

“Hydro bills are $ 6,000 per month, COVID prevents us from fundraising given the precarious state of the Co-op des Draveurs (arena) in Fort-Coulonge. Mr. Fortin, as a provincial deputy, what can you do to help us save the arena? » Asked the Coopérative du Center de loisir des Draveurs.

André Fortin believes that charities and cooperatives have not received the necessary financial assistance and that the government will have to pay attention to his cases.

Remember that the Centre de loisir des Draveurs has decided not to open the arena for the 2020-21 season.
