New lambs are arriving on schedule for the flock of North Country Cheviot x Suffolk and Rideau Arcott sheep owned by Andrea Goffart and Jozsef Veres.

Le Droit

Les fondations à ciel ouvert sur le chemin du Lac-des-Loups, dans la municipalité de Pontiac, resteront à la vue de tous. Le propriétaire des lieux, Alain Larose, a dû annuler la commande de sa maison usinée et songe maintenant à poursuivre la municipalité.

Le 3 mars dernier, M. Larose obtenait le permis de construction pour sa nouvelle maison et entame les travaux. Le 12 mai, la fondation était coulée. Le 20 mai, sa femme Hélène Gervais faisait un suivi avec un employé du service d'urbanisme. Sept jours plus tard, la municipalité émettait un avis pour l'obliger à mettre fin aux travaux.
