Why we need a pool

Dear Editor,
As we move forward attracting business and investment to the Pontiac we need to provide the Pontiac with attractions and amenities so that the increased population chooses to live here. We also need to improve a better quality of life for people already living here. There is no other facility which can improve health and wellness better than an aquacentre.
In June 2017 members of the Piscine Pontiac Pool Committee made a presentation to the MRC Council of Mayors to support an aquacentre in Fort Coulonge. This location was proposed for three reasons: 1) centrally located 2) 26% of the Pontiac population live in Mansfield and Fort Coulonge and 3) Fort Coulonge is one of the poorest Pontiac municipalities.
The result was a unanimous vote by the 18 mayors for the location in Fort Coulonge.
