Sher­brooke

New Demo­crat MPs Pierre-Luc Dusseault (Sher­brooke) and Jean Rousseau (Comp­ton-Stanstead) are dis­ap­pointed that the Con­ser­va­tive govern­ment is get­ting in the way of the re­open­ing of this re­gional air­port.

“The Con­ser­va­tives have re­peated ad nau­seam that the econ­omy is their only pri­or­ity, but by snub­bing the Sher­brooke air­port, they’ve clearly shown that they can talk the talk, but when it comes to con­crete mea­sures, we get noth­ing,” said Dusseault.

“A re­gional air­port would not only be an as­set for Sher­brooke, but for the whole re­gion,” added Rousseau. “The may­ors, the provin­cial and fed­eral MPs and the cit­i­zens must all be push­ing in the same di­rec­tion so that the air­port be­comes a pri­or­ity. It’s not by work­ing be­hind closed doors, each do­ing our own thing, that we’ll be able to get ahead,” said the MPs.
