Former Liberal Party leader Stephane Dion speaks to a group of protesters outside the La Peche municipal hall in Masham, Quebec, just outside of Wakefield April 4. The former environment minister came to the rally in support of Pontiac candidate Cindy Duncan McMillan and her commitment to protect the Gatineau River. Over 150 people from across La Peche turned out to the march to express outrage over a lack of government transparency with projects such as the light industrial park, the extension of Hwy 5 and a regional septic treatment facility. The crowd marched along Masham streets armed with signs, whistles and drums–en route to the April 4 council meeting for a public showdown. Pick up this week’s Low Down to find out what happened.
