Several pieces of news caught the attention of our teams of journalists across the province. Here is in a few seconds this news which makes talk at home.
In Trois-Rivières, after a year of uncertainty, the graduates of Les Pionniers high school were finally entitled to a whole ceremony on Friday. Dressed in their 31s, smiles on their faces, half of the graduates arrived at 9:30 am, not knowing what to expect. Graduation ceremony, taking pictures, dance floor, but above all a guard of honor made up of parents of students. The other half of the 300 graduates were treated to the same ceremony in the afternoon.
In Rimouski, the relaxation of sanitary measures will facilitate the organization of day camps this year. Activities begin Monday in several cities in the province. We put the key to the final preparations. Instructors will no longer have to wear the mask at all times outside when they can respect the distance from young people.
In Sherbrooke, while a little more than one in five citizens in Estrie has received their two doses of vaccine, the region is in catch-up mode. The mass arrival of doses of the Moderna vaccine is giving the public hope. There are also pharmacists who follow suit, who have started to vaccinate their patients who had already received a first dose. Better accessibility to anticipate its second meeting should allow the region to catch up with the others in Quebec.
In Quebec, while we have just learned that unionized employees at Exceldor will be able to end this strike on Saturday, they had the opportunity on Friday to consult the details of the proposal. And now, the approximately 550 workers of the plant will be gathered at the plant, but also remotely, to vote, which could end this strike which has now been going on for more than a month. It remains to be seen what result will be announced.
