“Despite all its potential, our region remains socio-economically underdeveloped, and our incomes are also far below the provincial average. The Upper St. Lawrence region has been neglected for many years, like the far end of the province’s backyard. No major development worthy of the name has taken place as long as I’ve been there. One only has to think of the recurring problems with landfill and waste disposal by dubious companies. The region has immense potential that needs to be promoted and developed.”
