ness that teaches sail­ing on Lake Mem­phrem­a­gog, and the Savon des Can­tons, a twelve year-old busi­ness that makes hand­made soap and cos­met­ics.

“Many busi­ness projects have taken off since their pre­sen­ta­tion at the first edi­tion of the Eye of Mem­phré. These ones were the first to qual­ify in or­der to ben­e­fit from this of­fer. Each dol­lar counts when a new project is be­ing launched and we are proud to have been able to con­trib­ute to lighten the fi­nan­cial load of these pro­mot­ers,” said Yvan Lan­thier, the di­rec­tor gen­eral of the CLD.

“These two projects, re­lated to our tourism in­dus­try, boost our lo­cal econ­omy,” added Vicki May Hamm, the mayor of Ma­gog and the pres­i­dent of the CLD. “The ini­tia­tive of the Eye of Mem­phré has as its ob­jec­tive the pro­mo­tion of the emer­gence of busi­ness projects and I am happy to state that the pos­i­tive ef­fects of these projects can still be no­ticed, sev­eral months af­ter the pas­sage of these en­trepreneurs be­fore the panel of ex­perts.”

cadets and Chris­tian St-Onge will pa­trol Coat­i­cook this sum­mer, bring­ing added se­cu­rity to the cit­i­zens and im­prov­ing their polic­ing skills in readi­ness for their fu­ture oc­cu­pa­tions.

Sincethe be­gin­ning of the month, two Sureté du Que­bec cadets have joined the Coat­i­cook SQ to keep the vil­lage safe and tran­quil. Josianne Thibault and Chris­tian St-Onge were hired as part of the Pro­gramme de cadets de la Sureté du Que­bec. These fu­ture po­lice of­fi­cers will pa­trol parks and take part in events and in com­mu­nity re­la­tions ac­tiv­i­ties.

“We are very happy with this ini­tia­tive and proud to host the Cadets in the City of Coat­i­cook. Their pres­ence in our pub­lic spa­ces will en­hance the work of the po­lice and in­crease the sense of pub­lic se­cu­rity in our cit­i­zens,” com­mented Si­mon Madore, the Coat­i­cook coun­cil­lor in charge of re­cre­ation and pub­lic se­cu­rity.

“As di­rec­tor of the SQ post of the Coat­i­cook MRC, I am en­thu­si­as­tic about re­ceiv­ing SQ cadets from this pro­gram for the first time. The qual­ity of the train­ing that they re­ceived al­lows them to re­spond pro­fes­sion­ally to the needs of our cit­i­zens. The cadets are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing en­rich­ing work di­rectly re­lated to their fu­ture pro­fes­sion,” com­mented Sergeant Fred­er­ick Pel­letier, the di­rec­tor of the Coat­i­cook MRC post.
