Amos’ river expeditions return

It was smooth sailing on the Coulonge and Ottawa rivers on Saturday, as expert and beginner paddlers hopped in canoes to explore the natural beauty of the region, led by their Member of Parliament.
Nearly 30 participants arrived at the end of chemin de la Centrale in Mansfield et Pontefract on Saturday morning, joining Pontiac MP Will Amos for his second Community Paddle Event.
“It’s about promoting tourism in our region, it’s about building community, it’s about having fun and it’s trying to connect people from across the region, including people from the National Capital region, who may not have seen the Pontiac [before],” said Amos, of holding the event.
