The deadline to decide the fate of a picturesque cave 45 minutes from downtown Ottawa is looming closer and dividing local residents in Quebec’s Papineau region.

On Friday, a group that wants to keep the site open, the Friends of the Mine, led a guided tour through the site. Attendees included media and local politicians as well as representatives from Laflèche Cave tours and Explora Geo-Rallye interested in turning the site into an eco-tourist attraction.
