Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

The mag­a­zine Geo Plein Air is run­ning a con­test to find the Que­bec mu­nic­i­pal­ity with the most “plein air” or, in other words, with the best out­door ac­tiv­i­ties.

There are four Town­ships mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties among the fi­nal­ists: Coat­i­cook with its parc de la Gorge which fea­tures horse­back rid­ing, hik­ing, moun­tain bik­ing, snow­shoing, snow tub­ing and camp­ing; Sut­ton with its ski moun­tain, nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment park Sut­ton en Haut and Au Di­able Vert; Ma­gog with its Mont Or­ford ski cen­tre and park, the Marais de la Riviere aux Cerises (marsh) and the Vélor­oute des Can­tons; and Notre Dame des Bois with its en­trance to the Mont Me­gan­tic park with its Astrolab, two ob­ser­va­to­ries and its many kilo­me­tres of hik­ing, snow­shoe­ing and cross-coun­try ski trails.

The ten towns that will re­ceive the most votes will be pre­sented in a spe­cial ar­ti­cle in the June 2011 edi­tion of Geo Plein Air. The win­ning mu­nic­i­pal­ity will be fea­tured on the mag­a­zine’s cover.

The pub­lic is be­ing asked to vote, from among the fifty pre-se­lected mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, to de­ter­mine the Pal­mares des mu­nic­i­pal­ités Géo Plein Air du Québec at www.geo­pleinair.com. So if you would like to see a town in our re­gion get some good pub­lic­ity that may at­tract new tourists to the area, take a few min­utes to vote. Vot­ing ends on Fe­bru­ary 28th.
