    Dans la nuit du 13 au 14 mars à Ste Cecile de Masham, Pascal Gauvreau est décédé. Selon son épouse, Karine Gagnon, la cause du décès est la maladie coronarienne. Pascal était également père de cinq enfants et travaillait dans le secteur de la construction. Selon de nombreux témoignages sur Facebook, Pascal était un père dévoué qui travaillait fort et savait faire rire son entourage. Cet événement inattendu est d'autant plus difficile que la famille est depuis plusieurs mois à la recherche d'un logement convenable. La maison qu'ils louent actuellement est à vendre. La famille souhaite rester dans la région de La Pêche afin de pouvoir vivre leur deuil en paix et permettre aux enfants de continuer à fréquenter leur école. Un membre de la famille, Simone Gauvreau, a lancé une collecte de fonds sur GoFundMe pour leur offrir un soutien dans cette période difficile. Les funérailles de Pascal auront lieu le samedi 27 mars au salon funéraire McGarry à Wakefield. En raison de la réglementation Covid, seuls la famille et leurs proches pourront y assister, mais les funérailles seront retransmises en direct depuis le salon funéraire. Si vous connaissez un logement à La Pêche qui peut répondre aux besoins de cette famille, veuillez appeler le 819-456-3058.

     

    In the night of March 13 to 14 in Ste Cecile de Masham, Pascal Gauvreau died. According to his wife, Karine Gagnon, the cause of death is coronary artery disease. Pascal was also the father of five children and worked in the construction industry. According to numerous testimonials on Facebook, Pascal was a dedicated dad who worked hard and knew how to make those around him laugh. This unexpected event is made all the more difficult because for several months the family has been looking for adequate accommodation. The house they are currently renting is for sale. The family wishes to remain in the region of La Pêche in order to be able to mourn in peace, and to enable the children to continue to attend their school. A family member, Simone Gauvreau, launched a fundraiser on Go Fund Me to offer them support in this difficult time. Pascal's funeral will be held Saturday March 27 at the McGarry funeral home in Wakefield. Because of the Covid regulations, only family and a small group of loved ones will be able to attend, but the funeral will be livestreamed from the funeral home. If you know of any accommodation in La Pêche that can meet the needs of this family, please call 819-456-3058.

    With the booming real estate market across the country it is driving locals out from their own communities. Houses are not staying on the market long due to the recent exodus of the city.  With houses selling, tenants are being forced to find new rentals that are scarce and unaffordable.  Kelly and Kasey tell talk about their own struggles here in La Peche.

    Country-living communities within the capital region, such as the La Peche area has seen a real spike in the housing market since the pandemic.  These communities housed local artists, musicians and entrepreneurs that made this community a destination.  Now, with these founding residents are getting pushed out.  La Peche area is also cottage country which also plays into the effects of the lack of long-term rental properties.   

    Kelly and Kasey talk about the possible affect to their employment, their children, their family unit, possibly their custody and the overall stress of finding a place to live in order to stay in their chosen community.  These hard-working single moms do not qualify for low-income housing, but the increase of housing prices and rentals are becoming out of reach and may be forced into leaving.

    Intellectual Disability Awareness Week will take place March 21 to 27, 2021.  I thought we would take a look at some of the programs in La Peche that have felt the great impacts of Covid 19.  I had the real pleasure in visiting the CADS program at Sommet Edelweiss to chat about the hardships of 2021. 

    CADS-NCD Sommet Edelweiss has been active since 1979.  Serving more than sixty snow enthusiasts for the weekends in January and February, the CADS-NCD Sommet Edelweiss program offers more than 3,500 hours of outdoor recreation to the disabled community of Ottawa-Hull and La Peche region. The program is 100% volunteer based. Each disabled participant is partnered with at least one and sometimes two volunteers.  100 volunteers participate in the program and it is a worry on how the pandemic will continue to affect this wonderful program.

    Skiing is a vital part of these participants lives during our Canadian winters.  Not only does it offer a physical release, but it gives a social experience, friends, comradery, and a healthy outdoor outing.  The restrictions of the pandemic forced the CADS programs in the Outaouais region to be cancelled.  The impacts are great, to the all the participants/athletes, the volunteers and the parents/loved ones.

    A visually impaired participant, named Tatjana speaks on the joys and freedom skiing gives to her.  It is experiential programs like this that can truly impact one’s lifestyle.  It was a real pleasure to listen and witness the freedom that this sport has given to Tatjana.

    Depuis l'achèvement de la phase 2 de l'autoroute 5 près de Wakefield, au Québec, de nombreux accidents se sont produits à l'intersection de l'autoroute 5 et du ch. Maclaren. L’officier Robitaille a remarqué que trop d'accidents inutiles se produisaient pour commencer ses recherches. De 2017 à 2020, l’officier Robitaille a découvert qu'au moins 31 accidents se sont produits ici à cette intersection. À l'automne 2020, un camion-citerne de carburant a traversé l'intersection, a roulé et a renversé plus de 20000 litres de carburant. Plusieurs mois de nettoyage ont été nécessaires pour nettoyer le site du déversement.

    La phase 2 de l'autoroute 5 a été achevée en 2014. Cette autoroute à double voie se termine en bas d'une colline jusqu'à un panneau d'arrêt. Avant le panneau d'arrêt, des panneaux d'avertissement mènent à l'intersection. Cependant, avec le nombre d'accidents ici, cela prouve que la signalisation actuelle n'était pas suffisante. Après enquête et consultation avec le ministère des Transports du Québec, il y a maintenant un plan pour avoir un feu clignotant à cette intersection. Ce feu clignotant donnera un visuel beaucoup plus grand à l'intersection où se termine l'autoroute 5.

    Since the completion of phase 2 of Highway 5 near Wakefield, Quebec there has been many accidents occurring at the intersection of Hwy 5 and Ch. Maclaren.  Constable Robitaille took notice that too many unnecessary accidents were occurring to started his research.  Since 2017 to 2020 Constable Robitaille discovered at least 31 accidents occurred here at this intersection.  Fall of 2020, a fuel tanker truck went thru the intersection, rolled and spilled over 20000 liters of fuel.  Many months of clean up was necessary to clean up the spill site.

    Phase 2 of HWY 5 was completed in 2014.  This double lane highway ends down a hill to only a stop sign.  Prior to the stop sign there are warning signs leading to the intersection.  However, with the number of accidents here it proves that the current signage was not enough.  After investigation and consulting with the Ministry of Transportation of Quebec, there is now a plan to have a flashing light at this intersection.  This flashing light will give a much greater visual to the intersection where highway 5 ends.
