●PUBLISHER'S NOTE: It was discovered after this update was published that the Municipality of Pontiac and the builder, Lalonde Cantin Construction (LCC), are locked in a dispute the full nature of which is unclear at this time. Despite multiple attempts to reach out to the Municipality, clarification of the causes of the dispute, as well as the dispute's influence on the completed project's delivery date or when the new community centre will open have not been forthcoming, and are therefore unknown. We continue to follow this story and we will bring you any updates as they become known.
