On February 20 & 21 2009 the citizens of Rivière Pentecôte voted 61 % against the Pentecôte River project, this vote reflects that the citizens are not interested in such a project. The Mayor said publicly that she will not consider the vote and will go forward with the project anyway. This is a unacceptable and we ask you again to help us stop this nonsense once and for all
