We want senior hockey

A movement is afoot to bring high-level hockey back to the Pontiac, and that should be welcomed.
Nick St-Laurent and Danick Boisvert are looking to bring senior hockey teams to Fort Coulonge and Shawville, along with other communities across the Ottawa Valley.
I didn’t grow up in Shawville, but I’ve heard stories.
A friend of mine played for the Shawville Junior B’s and said it was a great experience.
Other have told me about how the arena would be packed to the gills on a Friday night to cheer on the home team.
High school kids would get a chance to meet up with their friends and hang out on a Friday night. Parents would get a chance to catch up with some old pals – with the added bonus of being able to keep an eye on those previously mentioned high schoolers.
