LITCHFIELD – Pontiac MNA Andre Fortin, on behalf of Laurent Lessard, Minister of Transport, awarded $152,802 to three Pontiac snowmobile and ATV clubs, March 17, at the Pontiac Quad Club office.
The funding gave $20,688 to the Pontiac Snowmobile Drivers Association Inc.; $82,749 for the Pinguoin Snowmobile Club; and $49,365 to the Pontiac Quad Club. This will added to the clubs’ operational budgets, allowing them to maintain trails and equipment, acquire additional equipment, and enhance the safety of users. 
According to Patrick Amyotte, Pontiac Quad Club president, the funds will also help cover the wages of employees.
Fortin stressed how both the ATV and snowmobile industries are economic levers not only for the Pontiac, but Quebec as a whole.
