Ninety kilometres of the Route Verte at risk

Dear Editor,
This past April, the MRC de Pontiac (MRC) initiated a plan to convert Cycloparc PPJ into an off-road vehicle (quad) trail. Cycloparc PPJ has been part of Quebec’s Route Verte since 2008. Because of this, the MRC was able to obtain an $80,000 grant from the Ministère des Transports du Québec in 2018 to help with maintenance costs for the trail. Cycloparc PPJ’s official inclusion in the Route Verte was formalized with a memorandum of understanding between the MRC and Vélo Québec, which acts as an agent for the Quebec government to develop and protect the province-wide network of bicycle facilities.
