Council heard the pros and cons from all those that attended. I have personally also attended workshops related to pits and quarries,to gather information on all aspects involved on such a operation. After extensive research and discussions,council came to the decision that the liabilities were too great for this project. On March 19th, 2014 council passed a resolution not supporting the transfer.the MNR has stated that license will not be transferred and will be terminated. Mayor Paul Schoppmann Les gens se posent encore des questions au sujet de la carrière de granit de la municipalité. Récemment, il y a eu de nouvelles décisions adoptées au sujet du transfert de la licence de cette entreprise. Comme plusieurs d entre vous savez, les partisans de ce projet se sont rencontrés le 30 novembre 2013 à salle communautaires. Nous avons écouté attentivement leurs arguments et en avons pesé le pour et le contre. Afin de prendre des décisions plus justes et à point, j ai moi-même assisté à des réunions et reçu de l information en ce qui concerne la gérance et l opération des carrières et des puits de mine. Après de nombreuses recherches et discussions intenses, nous avons conclu que ce projet était trop risqué et par conséquent, le 19 mars 2014, le Conseil a passé une motion décidant de ne pas supporter le projet. Le Ministère des Ressources Naturelles a terminé la licence et elle ne sera pas transférée. Nous sommes prêts à répondre à vos questions. Jouissez de la belle température tout en passant un bel été.

Welcome to the childhood of Catherine McClure Gildiner. At the tender age of four, Cathy accompanies Roy, the deliveryman at her father's pharmacy, on his routes. She shares some of their memorable deliveries: sleeping pills to Marilyn Monroe (in town filming Niagara), sedatives to Mad Bear, a violent Tuscarora chief, and fungus cream to Warty, the gentle operator of the town dump. As she reaches her teenage years, Cathy's irrepressible spirit spurs her from dangerous sled rides that take her "too close to the Falls" to tipsy dances with the town priest. This book generated a lot of controversy among our readers. Next month's read is "Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern.
