Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Last Wed­nes­day, Or­ford MNA Pierre Reid was in Can­ton Stanstead to an­nounce, on be­half of the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion, Recreation and Sport, Se­bastien Proulx, fi­nan­cial sup­port that could be as much as $78,533.08 for the in­stal­la­tion of a mul­ti­func­tional skat­ing rink in Thayer Park.

“By sup­port­ing ini­tia­tives like this, here and in all re­gions of Que­bec, the gov­ern­ment con­trib­utes in of­fer- ing the pop­u­la­tion the best sport and recreation con­di­tions pos­si­ble. I am very happy that we are in­vest­ing for the in­ter­ests of our cit­i­zens, par­tic­u­larly our youth,” said Mr. Reid.

The Min­is­ter of the Estrie re­gion and the Sher­brooke MNA, Luc Fortin, com­mented: “Be­cause of this project, the re­gion not only im­proves its sport and recreation re­sources, but also al­lows ath­letes, young peo­ple who prac­tice sports and the pop­u­la­tion in general to ben­e­fit from safe in­stal­la­tions adapted to their needs.”
