Open letter to Mathieu Lacombe, Minister responsible for the Outaouais Re: Special intervention zone

Dear Sir,
I am writing to you today to express concerns my constituents have raised regarding the special intervention zone (Zone d’Intervention Spéciale - ZIS) that your government wants to put in place in at-risk for floods areas.
Like you, my priority is for flood victims to return to a semblance of normalcy. That’s why the federal government quickly allocated $ 2.5 million to the Red Cross to help those affected by floods. Our government has also been proactive in providing compensation by offering advance payments to provinces to facilitate your work and expedite the compensation process. We also have funds in place to facilitate the reconstruction of infrastructure better adapted to climate change.
