The new Mayor of Blainville, Liza Poulin, has been appointed to several positions and to the Union des municipalités du Québec and the MRC de Thérèse-De Blainville in sectors of activity related to fields of action deemed as priorities by the municipal administration, such as the environment, natural and recreational environments and culture.

The Union of Quebec Municipalities (UMQ) is an organization that represents nearly 400 municipalities in Quebec and brings together 50 elected officials, mayors, prefects and presidents of metropolitan communities within its board of directors. The UMQ defends the interests of its members with the Quebec government and informs them about current issues and current debates in the municipal world.

Mayor Liza Poulin therefore sits on the caucus of the municipalities of the Metropolis as a representative of the Northern Crown. She is also a member of the Laurentides regional caucus.

At the level of the MRC de Thérèse-De Blainville, Liza Poulin has been appointed vice-president of the Table Action Culture et Patrimoine, a regional body that brings together various partners in the field of culture and aims to make it a lever for economic and social development in the territory. The mayoress of Blainville is also part of the Office of delegates for waterways and of Le P’tit train du Nord regional park as an elected delegate.

Ms. Poulin also became president of the wetlands and bodies of water committee, which oversees the conservation and restoration of natural environments. We know that the territory of Blainville is largely made up of these natural environments.

“These appointments clearly reflect my administration’s priorities, including environmental protection. Blainville wants to have its say in these areas, both in the MRC and in the greater Montreal area. As for culture, we know that it is an added value in our region and it will be a source of pride to promote it with our precious partners from the Table Action Culture et Patrimoine. Finally, I will be able to carry the voice of Blainville and our region within this great municipal forum that is the UMQ. It is a great honor to sit on these bodies,” she announced.
