Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Thep­res­i­dent of the Cor­po­ra­tion de de­vel­oppe­ment de l’aero­port de Sher­brooke (CDAS), mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil­lor Julien Lachance, re­acted with pru­dence to the re­ports sug­gest­ing that the City of Bos­ton was a “se­ri­ous op­tion” as a de­vel­op­ment part­ner with Sher­brooke.

“We have had dis­cus­sions with Bos­ton, as we have had with the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of other com­mu­ni­ties, no­tably Burling­ton. For now, many sce­nar­ios are on the ta­ble to find the best for­mula in or­der to of­fer qual­ity ser­vices at the Sher­brooke air­port,” said Mr. Lachance.

The CDAS along with elected of­fi­cials and em­ploy­ees of the City of Sher­brooke have been work­ing for months to gather the most support pos­si­ble to de­velop the air­port. “All po­lit­i­cal support is wel­come and we high­light the work of all the re­gional de­putees who con­trib­ute to our ob­jec­tive which is to ob­tain des­ig­na­tion for the Sher­brooke air­port,” com­mented the pres­i­dent of the CDAS.

Pri­vate dis­cus­sions will con­tinue with dif­fer­ent part­ners, dur­ing the next few weeks, and the City of Sher­brooke hopes that a pos­i­tive an­nounce­ment will be made soon re­gard­ing this file.
