Polymer cycle, by Philippe Corriveau, inaugurated in the Nature Park!

December 1, 2022

The Cycle Polymer Work, by Philippe Corriveau, inaugurated in the Nature Park!

A new work, Le Cycle Polymère, created by artist Philippe Corriveau, now stands in the Pointe-des-Cascades nature park. Peter Zytynsky, Mayor of Pointe-des-Cacades, accompanied by Isabelle Poirier, Assistant Director General and Martin Champagne, Coordinator of Sports, Recreation, Culture and Community Life for the municipality were present. Marianne Sigouin-Lebel, Executive Director of the Soulanges Canal Park, Julie Lemieux, President of the CACVS and Daphnée Lecours-Tessier, representative of the Haut Saint-Laurent ZIP Committee were also on hand with artist Philippe Corriveau. The purpose of this work of art is to raise awareness of the impact of plastic on the local wildlife of the St. Lawrence.

The Upper St. Lawrence ZIP Committee would like to thank the St. Lawrence Action Fund (SLF), through the St. Lawrence Marine Biodiversity Program, in collaboration with Advantage St. Lawrence, the new maritime vision of the Quebec government. The project was also made possible by a contribution from the Community Interaction Program, linked to the St. Lawrence Action Plan 2021-2026 and implemented by the governments of Canada and Quebec, as well as the municipality of Pointe-des-Cascades. The Upper St. Lawrence ZIP Committee thanks the Conseil des arts et de la culture de Vaudreuil-Soulanges for its financial support and coaching services.

The origin of the project | In the fall of 2021, the Upper St. Lawrence ZIP Committee held a clean-up day at the Pointe-des-Cascades nature park. “In one day alone, more than 500 kg of garbage was removed from the banks of the St. Lawrence River. This beautiful result was possible thanks to more than a dozen people who came to contribute to the cleanup, explained the project coordinator and biologist Daphnée Lecours Tessier.

Following this chore, some of the plastic waste was given to the artist to integrate into this work of art. The work in Pointe-des-Cascades is part of the triptych in the making, The Polymer Cycle, created following the various cleanups in 2021 organized by the Upper St. Lawrence ZIP Committee. In fact, one work is installed in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, another in Les Coteaux and one in Pointe-des-Cascades. The Great Blue Heron, installed in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, is also part of the circuit of works.

This event is a perfect fit with their efforts to promote accessibility to the region’s waterways.

Dogs: a pilot project being tested for the 2022 season

Following an in-depth reflection carried out in collaboration with partners and users, a pilot project will take place for the summer of 2022. Dogs will be tolerated in the Parc du canal de Soulanges (and Soulanges Bike Path). Conditions (could change during the season, watch for announcements to that effect!):
➡ On the trail, please avoid the busiest periods (weekends between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.);
➡ Under surveillance and under control at all times;
➡ On a leash, maximum length of 1.5 m., retractable leash prohibited. Note: according to provincial regulations in effect since 2020 , any dog over 20 kg must also wear a halter or harness when in a public place.
➡ Held to the right, off the riding surface (path) when possible;
➡ Walk your dog OR ride a bike, not both at the same time! (only walks are allowed);
➡ Immediate collection of excrement;
➡ Courtesy and kindness are required.
The objective of this pilot project is to better document and supervise the presence of dogs in the park and to educate dog owners about minimizing the risks associated with their companion. The Parc du canal de Soulanges crosses many residential neighborhoods and we are aware that it is also a magical place for the daily outing of doggy. But we would like to remind you that having your dog with you in the park is a privilege and not a right, we hope that this pilot project will be done in harmony.
Our employees and our patrols will ensure the smooth running of the pilot project. A final decision regarding the Park’s regulations will be made during the post-mortem of this project. Watch our website for updates regarding this pilot project.

Raymond Malo_Gracieuseté MRCVS
Heritage

The region pays tribute to Mr. Raymond Malo

April 29, 2022

Retirement time for a great ambassador of the Soulanges Canal

Recently, we celebrated the retirement of a man who devoted his life to the development of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region. After three decades in development and then as directeur général adjoint of the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Mr. Raymond Malo bows out with, we are sure, the sweet feeling of accomplished duty. Raymond Malo served the region with determination, passion and patience. His interventions are always relevant, posed, strategic and often present a fair touch of humor, to be able to express his thoughts even better. I often said to myself that he was a real “legged encyclopedia”. He has traveled to the four corners of the planet and has drawn an original vision of the world around us, which he likes to share.

Mr. Raymond Malo is one of those who made progress on the Soulanges canal project. He was part of it when the MRC integrated this big and complex area as a regional park into the region’s development plan. It was quite visionary at the time, one can imagine. Twenty years later and an agreement signed with the MTQ in hand: today we have our Parc du canal de Soulanges! So much work done to get here. Raymond Malo will also bequeath us a master plan for cultural and landscape development, projecting us into the future over several decades. Now it’s up to us!

To highlight Raymond Malo’s important contribution, the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges will dedicate a public space in his honor. We will therefore be pleased to collaborate with the MRC for Place Raymond-Malo, which will be located in the Parc du canal de Soulanges in order to offer a place of rest and an exceptional view of the most important built heritage of the region.

On behalf of the Conseil d’administration of Parc du canal de Soulanges, on my personnal behalf and on behalf of the Parc team and our many collaborators, thank you for everything, Mr. Malo! And happy retirement, so deserved!
