Yesterday, the Regional Council of Mayors of the MRC Pontiac held an extraordinary general meeting to deal with the perceived conflict of interest recently reported on by the CHIP 101.9 newsroom. In the interest of Conflict, the Mayor of the municipality of l’Île-du-Grand-Calumet failed to report owning two small islands locate near the proposed National Park Project site; the Iles Lafontaine, while being one of the two mayors sitting on the MRC Pontiac’s National Park Committee. The Mayors of the MRC Pontiac voted on, and approved, two resolutions on Mayor Serge Newberry’s perceived conflict of interest.

In the Non-official Translation of the MRC Pontiac Resolutions, it was said that: ’’Whereas the MRC Pontiac Warden and the Council of mayors had no knowledge that the Mayor of l’Île-du-Grand-Calumet owned two islands which were part of the proposed national park plan; Whereas the MRC Pontiac Warden and the Council of mayors have concerns about a perceived conflict of interest revealed through the media recently:’’

As a result, the MRC has resolved to create a new MRC committee focused on creating a national park within the Pontiac, to name the members of this committee, to determine which islands will compose the national park and to define the clear mandate for the committee. The MRC has also resolved that the Warden divulge this perceived conflict of interest to the Commission municipale du Québec (CMQ) .

During the media debrief, the Warden of the MRC Jane Toller explained why these two resolutions were decided among the Mayors.

In an interview following the extraordinary meeting, the Mayor of l’Île-du-Grand-Calumet, Serge Newberry, reacted to the resolutions:
