The first ever Pontiac youth council convened at the MRC office in Campbell’s Bay on Jan. 21, to introduce themselves and lay the groundwork for their upcoming term.
The group, ranging in age from 14 to 18 and representing all local municipalities, assembled themselves around the table in the Elsie Gibbons room like their counterparts on the MRC’s regional council. The guest seating was packed with local officials and parents.
Pontiac Warden Jane Toller addressed the group and explained that she had personally spearheaded the project by advocating for the council at both local high schools.
