relocation of complete teams of technicians and engineers to finalize the installation. “It is completely unacceptable that in 2020 and in the midst of a pandemic, the government is abandoning our regions,” said Official Opposition Leader Dominique Anglade. This forces citizens to be patient and sacrifice their quality of life. There is an urgent need to act in the name of the vitality and development of our regions.” In spite of this situation, Fibre Argenteuil Inc. is now proceeding with registrations for residential and commercial connections that can be made during the coming year. Registered customers will be treated on a priority basis and connected to the network as soon as it is completed by December 2021.

The lack of access permits for the sup- port structures forces Fibre Argenteuil Inc. and the MRC d’Argenteuil to post- pone the deadlines for certain high- speed Internet connections. High-speed internet connections will have to wait in several sectors of Argenteuil. Since last August 6, a coordination table comprised of representatives from the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation, Hydro-Québec, Bell Canada and the MRC d’Argenteuil, has resolved several disputes related to access to support structures. Indeed, technicians involved in the installation of fibre-optic equipment need to have access to certain structures, notably those belonging to Hydro- Québec.

This situation has forced the MRC d’Argenteuil, as well as Fibre Argenteuil Inc., the company mandated to handle the high- speed Internet connection file in the area, to postpone the planned deadlines by two to three months. The fibre-optic networks will therefore be completed in several phases. They are now scheduled to be completed successively from December of this year until December 2021. “The MRC d’Argenteuil is still waiting for tangible results and that it continues to mul- tiply its representations in order to make the governments of Canada and Quebec aware

of the many pitfalls and constraints related to access to these structures,” declared the MRC d’Argenteuil in a press release.

Permits for access to support structures have been issued. However, the radius of action they allow is too small to justify the
