Credit needs to be given where it is due.
It seems that the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l’Outaouais (CISSSO) is finally listening to Pontiac residents.
Last week, it was announced that former Mayor of Calumet Island, Pierre Fréchette, will be appointed to the CISSSO board of directors.
This is something that stakeholders in the Pontiac have been requesting for quite some time.
The advocacy group Santé Outaouais 2020 recommended that a representative from the Pontiac be appointed to the board so that the concerns of the local population can be heard more regularly.
Even the MRC Pontiac made a formal plea last year to CISSSO to include someone from the area.
“MRC council will request that a Pontiac representative be appointed to the CISSSO board of directors to ensure a healthy flow of information between the board and the citizens it serves,” reads a motion on the MRC Pontiac website.
