Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS -

Cana­dian Armed Forces and Cana­dian vet­er­ans will now be able to park for free in Ma­gog. The City adopted the new park­ing reg­u­la­tion at the Septem­ber 21 mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil meet­ing.

This by-law al­lows free park­ing to any holder of a com­mem­o­ra­tive li­cence plate. They will au­to­mat­i­cally have free ac­cess to park­ing spa­ces served by park­ing meters and park­ing meters in the City of Ma­gog.

The pur­pose of this mea­sure is to rec­og­nize the ded­i­ca­tion and courage of those who fought for our coun­try. “By fa­cil­i­tat­ing their travel, the City Coun­cil wishes to show its grat­i­tude to vet­er­ans who have par­tic­i­pated in com­bat or peace­keep­ing op­er­a­tions to pro­tect hu­man rights, free­dom and jus­tice around the world. We are proud of them and we thank them for the sac­ri­fices they make for us,” said the Mayor of the City of Ma­gog, Mrs. Vicki­may Hamm.

In Que­bec, nearly a dozen cities of­fer this priv­i­lege to vet­er­ans, in­clud­ing Saint-jean-sur-riche­lieu, Sher­brooke, Vic­to­ri­av­ille, Trois-riv­ières, Granby and Cowansvill­e.
