The Blockading Culture of the Gaspesie Must Cease

GASPÉ, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 23, 2013) - A group of businessmen/women and citizens of the town of Gaspé, who have been watching their regional economy disintegrate, have decided to create an organization who's name speaks for itself. The "Regroupement pour l'avancement économique de la Gaspésie" will serve as a vehicle of intervention that will assure the harmonious development of all economic related files.

The main objective of the Regroupement pour l'avancement économique de la Gaspésie is to become an additional voice and unify those who are concerned with the economic development of the Gaspésie.

"The motivation behind the creation or this organization stems from the recent situation concerning the development of the petroleum industry in the town of Gaspé. The recent actions by the town council are absolutely unacceptable. For many years, the Gaspésie has been suffering from an important declining economic situation. The systematic blockage culture must cease." states Mr. Gaston Langlais, spokesperson of the organization.

The Regroupement pour l'avancement économique de la Gaspésie intends to maintain pressure on the town council in order to permit the drilling of Haldimand 4 by suspending its recent regulation. "Now that our organization exists, we will do everything in our power to make our voice heard, each and every time an economic project for the Gaspésie is threatened by negative public opinion." concludes Mr. Langlais.
