Question period at St. Lazare town council meetings Dear Editor, With September 22nd fast approaching (the actual date where potential candidates may begin submitting their intent to run in the next elections), this may be my one and only chance to use this venue to make a political statement. You all know that I have, and always have had, an open-door policy at town hall. I will meet with any resident upon their request, and I will answer all questions and discuss any issue.
Council meeting observations Dear Editor, I thought I was at the Hudson meeting or the Harper Valley PTA the way the September 5 St. Lazare council meeting was being conducted. Nothing has changed in the last 12 months. I was totally frustrated by certain citizens holding the council members hostage and dragging out the monthly meeting. I greatly appreciated the patience of the council members and Director General Serge Tremblay who repeated the same answers time and again to
Water, water everywhere… Dear Editor, Being relatively new to the Saint-Lazare area, we came upon a very bad situation as of August 29, 2017. Our water main burst and we immediately notified the city. They spent the whole day here locating the break which happened to be under our workshop.

Shotguns on a Sunday morning Dear Editor, Sitting up in bed on an early September Sunday with a hot cup of coffee and listening to gunshot noises in the distance. I don't get this. I've lived in Saint-Lazare for over 30 years, have contacted the city about this, and was told that hunters in our area are permitted as long as they are in the designated areas. I still don't get it. I live in an area with many homes, young families with small children. How do we explain this to c
Tree troubles Dear Editor, I feel sorry for the people who bought the house on Ridge Street and cleaned up the yard including the trees on their property that provided privacy for Pierre Lanctôt and Carole Ménard (Your Local Journal, September 7, page 7). Buying a property that has been let go over the years, you should be allowed to make it your own, and if that means cleaning up the place, cutting overgrown trees to clear up your lot, so that you have more room, light, spac

With the aftermath of Hurricane Irma still ravaging Florida - winter home-away-from-home for so many of our local Snowbirds - continuing to dominate the headlines, and Caribbean island hot spots for sun-seeking tourists from our region virtually wiped out with little relief in sight, this story could not be more timely. Unfortunately! ------------------------------------------------------------------ RALLYING FOR ROBYN - For while helping to set up a giant tent for one of the
PHOTO BY CÉLINE PILON (Left to right): Actor Patrick Dempsey, author Joël Dicker, and director Jean-Jacques Annaud are all in Hudson to take part in the filming of The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, a 10-part cable network production. Hudson is once again under the spotlights. Literally. It’s not a secret anymore that filming is taking place in town with yellow signs, huge white tents set up beside the municipal water treatment plant, and street closures. The Truth Abo
