On Tuesday June 6, during the MRC Pontiac’s Administrative Committee meeting, council reiterated the importance of passing bill n°122 before the end of the National Assembly’s parliamentary session. The Act mainly recognizes municipalities as local governments, and increases their autonomy and powers.
MRC Pontiac Warden, Raymond Durocher, said that, “It’s time that municipalities and the MRC intervene and act in their own local and regional development.”
Bill n° 122 is the result of five years of discussions with municipalities, citizens, socio-economic players, and the three main political parties represented at the National Assembly.
