Newly elected LaPlaine Village Councillor, Jason Fontaine, is calling on Minister for Youth, Sports and Constituency Empowerment, Justina Charles, to Honor the decision of the LaPlaine constituents, to change the members of the previous LaPlaine Village Council.
Recently elections were held for the LaPlaine Village Council, between two teams. Team 1 won the most votes, and comprised of Kervin Bateau-246, Jason Fontaine-238, Ella Laudat-229, Asher Laronde- 222; Rose Blaize and Vernika Allan tied at 211.
However, Fontaine told Q95 in an exclusive interview, Minister Justina Charles is attempting to push her political agenda, rather than honour the people’s choices, by attempting to have former Council Chairperson Rose Blaize returned to the position of chairperson, after she failed in that position, Jason says her failure along with the previous members of the Council was what prompted the election.
