TheCity of Sher­brooke is now on the list of cred­i­tors of the Mon­treal Maine & At­lantic Rail­way (MMA) for an amount of $86,742.19, es­sen­tially for the non-pay­ment of mu­nic­i­pal taxes for the land owned by the com­pany. Hy­dro-Sher­brooke is also on the list of cred­i­tors for an un­paid elec­tric­ity bill of $720.98.

“The City of sher­brooke will do ev­ery­thing in its power to re­cu­per­ate the amounts due, but like all of the other cred­i­tors, we are en­tere­ing a com­plex ju­di­cial phase and we must await its out­come,” com­mented mayor Bernard Se­vi­gny.

The City of Sher­brooke con­tin­ues its sup­port of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of LacMe­gan­tic and its pop­u­la­tion, by mak­ing avail­able spe­cial equip­ment as well as spe­cial­ized per­son­nel.

Atthe end of July, the mon­u­ment of the Canada Games 2013, cre­ated from ‘Stanstead grey’ gran­ite and in­stalled on the cam­pus of Bishop’s Univer­sity, was in­au­gu­rated. On the seven ton piece of gran­ite, rock artist David Mar­tel painted one of his ‘Blue An­gels’ sur­rounded by 20 pic­tograms of the sports at the Games. The artist also added a sym­bolic in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the logo of the Canada Games with three Olympic rings each with the num­ber 111.

David Mar­tel’s Blue An­gels have been ex­hib­ited at more than 200 ex­treme and sa­cred sites around the world: monas­ter­ies, caves, mines, palaces, in the Caribbean Sea, the Ama­zon jun­gle, in the ice, in Mayan tem­ples as well as in the in­te­rior of an ac­tive vol­cano.
