Some Gatineau homeowners in flood zone will not be allowed to

Gatineau homeowners whose residences need to be demolished and are located in a certain flood zone will not be able to rebuild under provincial law.

On this Memorial Day weekend, high waters and floating debris could pose dangers for recreational boaters on the region's waterways. Branches, docks, oil cans, jet-skis — the high water has carried all kinds of junk out of boathouses and down the St.

Gatineau residents whose homes are writeoffs because of flood damage and who live in the most flood-prone part of the city will not be allowed to rebuild. The ruling affects condemned properties in the zone that is considered likely to flood on average

In a meeting on Tuesday, the City of Gatineau announced measures to make it easier for flood victims
