 According to MRC Pontiac warden, Raymond Durocher, the MRC must take some time to analyze the court judgement before obtaining further legal advice to develop a new plan to try to save the infrastructure it considers essential to    the economic development of the region, including the industrial park in        Portage-du-Fort.
