Call to the community

“I saw that this morning on the news, then, given that I live there, it’s funny to hear the street at home; we never hear about it here,” testified a resident.

The mayor of Saint-Donat, Joé Deslauriers, invited the community to watch the surroundings, but to remain vigilant.

He recommended not venturing into the woods to avoid the tracks disappearing or the volunteers getting lost.

« We have an extremely dedicated community here in Saint-Donat, » he said.
