The province needs to get out of its own way

Residents of Allumettes Island and the Municipality of Pontiac had a chance to vent their frustrations about a lack of responsiveness in the wake of the floods that have pummelled the Pontiac over the last three years.
The first meeting took place in the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP) with representatives from the Ministry of Public Security (MSP) on June 10.
