February 16, 2017 — Québec’s Ministry of Transport, Sustainable Mobility, and Electrification of Transport (MTMDET – Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports) announced on February 14, 2017 their decision to remove the structure of the old dam at the Deschênes Rapids, Aylmer sector of Gatineau, for safety reasons.
