Letter to the editor 1, Feb. 11, 2015
In reading last week’s article on St. Lazare, it says that the festival au Galop will follow Canada Day celebrations (Your Local Journal, February 4, page 1.). This is false; the council is putting au Galop on Canada Day, the 1st of July and it will take up the 1st, 2nd and the 3rd.
This is why we were upset. Canada Day should always be called Canada Day and never au Galop.
Oh, they said it would save money because they could use the facilities already set up for Canada Day and then spend $350,000 for their festival and it will bring what to the town; spending more tax dollars instead of, as the mayor loves to say, “fix our infrastructure.”
