Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS - Ma­gog

TheM­a­gog-Or­ford re­gion fin­ished in first place in the Pal­mares des mu­nic­i­pal­ités Ra­dio-Canada Geo Plein Air, launched last March. In this sec­ond edi­tion of the con­test, the public was in­vited to vote for the most ‘out­door’ mu­nic­i­pal­ity in Que­bec from among the 54 se­lected by mem­bers of the edit­ing team of the mag­a­zine Geo Plein Air. By vot­ing, the public cre­ated a top ten list of mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties that distin­guished them­selves by the quan­tity, qual­ity and va­ri­ety of nat­u­ral at­trac­tions and the in­fra­struc­ture ded­i­cated to non-mo­tor­ized, out­door ac­tiv­i­ties: parks, cy­cling trails, ca­noe­ing rivers, ski­able ar­eas, walk­ing trails, moun­tain bik­ing, etc.

The Ma­gog-Or­ford re­gion made a good im­pres­sion with its Mont Or­ford Park and ski sta­tion, the trails of the Riviere aux Cerises marsh, its al­most forty kilo­me­ters of cy­cling trails and Lake Mem­phrem­a­gog.

“We thank ev­ery­one who showed their en­thu­si­asm for our re­gion by vot­ing for it in the con­test,” com­mented Vicki May Hamm, mayor of Ma­gog, and Jean-Pierre Adam, mayor of Can­ton Or­ford and pres­i­dent of the so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment com­mit­tee of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC. “The re­gion of­fers ex­tra­or­di­nary re­sources for out­door en­thu­si­asts and I am happy that our nu­mer­ous at­trac­tions have been rec­og­nized in this way by the public,” added Mr. Adam. In front of one of the re­gion’s bi­cy­cle paths we see mayor of Can­ton d’Or­ford, and mayor of Ma­gog, both proud of their first po­si­tion in the Pal­marès des mu­nic­i­pal­ités Ra­dio-Canada Géo Plein Air.
