Pontiac has a voice
Several thousand community members in the Pontiac have banded together to form a group opposed to the changes to healthcare services in the area. Called Pontiac Voice, the group was created on Facebook in late December and already has over 2,300 members.
Although the proposed implementation of paid parking at the Shawville Hospital is the primary concern of members, the group’s leaders intend to tackle a host of healthcare issues affecting local residents.
According to one of the group’s organizers, Josey Bouchard, their first objective is obtaining a face-to-face meeting with officials from CISSSO.
