On Oct. 10 the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce hosted a forum with the five candidates running for warden of MRC Pontiac at the R.A. Hall in Campbell’s Bay. The event brought out an audience of over 200 people and opened with a greeting from Chamber President Mireille Alary, who thanked the candidates and all those that coordinated the evening.
She pointed out that the Chamber of Commerce had advocated for a warden elected by universal suffrage all the way back in 2008. The floor opened for the candidates to make opening statements.
Bilingual moderator Joanne Romain then asked a series of three questions, each with a preamble, that the candidates had received in advance and they each had roughly three minutes to respond.
The mission of the CISSS de L’Outaouais is to maintain, improve and restore the health and well-being of the Outaouais residents by providing them with high quality health and social services, thus contributing to the region’s social and economic development.
Question one: How can we support the addition and retention of new physicians in the Pontiac and expand specialized services in our health centre?
