Grenville-sur-la-Rouge aiming to keep river for recreation

By James Morgan, The Review, April 8, 2019

Hydro-Québec has decided to sell land it owns on both sides of Rivière Rouge from along Chemin de la Rivière Rouge south to Route 148.

The municipality of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge is concerned that the sale of the land to private owners could end free access to the river for white-water canoeists, kayakers and rafters.

Council is considering a zoning change that would restrict permitted uses in most of the affected area to canoeing, kayaking, rafting, and interpretive trails.
