Maricourt approves new pig farm project

The town of Maricourt has given Gestion Isadan a construction permit to build a new pig farm in the small municipality, despite pushback from residents.
“We went ahead with the proposition and it was accepted at the meeting last night by everybody,” said Maricourt Mayor Robert Ledoux, adding that it was decided over a month ago. The town held a public council meeting on Tuesday evening.
According to Ledoux, his hands were effectively tied throughout the entire approval process, as the decision came down from Quebec’s Environment Ministry. However, the town was able to draw up several mitigation measures. He said most of the measures were accepted.
