Councillor has issues with 'incubator' plan

October 16, 2014

Sherbrooke city councillor Hélène Dauphinais (Pin-Solitaire) is raising questions about the future incubator for innovative businesses planned for the former Marquette St. police headquarters, and is focusing on the numbers submitted by the Sherbrooke Innopole on the costs of the project.
Innopole appeared on Tuesday before the council’s Committee of the Whole to seek financial assistance of $225,000. Dauphinais argues that the contribution of the City would actually amount to $600,000.
