Residents begin to clamour for A5 say

La Peche residents are starting a campaign to have their say in the Hwy 5 extension project, after hearing at a recent information session that there would no more public consultations on the project.

Cima + engineers and Quebec MOT officials said that all people consults for the highway project were held in the late 1980s and no more are scheduled. La Peche Director-General Charles Ricard urged residents to write to local politicians to pressure them to hold more consultations and they listened.

A posting in the Wakefield News e-mail newsletter May 25 lists several political figures with their contact numbers, including the Prime Minister’s Office and Gatineau MNA Stephanie Vallee. Concerned residents are sounding the call on the importance of the issue.
