“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.”
