Wakefield, Quebec youth adds voice to chorus of protesters


by admin on April 20, 2011

The Editor,

An open letter to citizens of the MRC:

Please, we need help to save our beloved Gatineau River. The mayor said that the septic treatment centre would not be too close to a tourist attraction. But in the end, is the river not a tourist attraction?

We are going to have a protest march on Thursday, the 21st of April in Chelsea. Will you please join us to make a difference. We have to be 1,000 people, so bring your friends, relatives and everybody you know.

If you love our river, please call your friends, email people you know, make posters, write letters to the mayor, to the councillors and those above.

Keep trying – it’s not a done deal.


Jarah, age 11
