Laval: un fonds avec l'argent récupéré de la corruption

Le Fonds Place-du-Souvenir utilisera 10M$ pour créer un programme d'intervention auprès des jeunes enfants et adolescents issus de milieux défavorisés.

La ville de Laval utilisera 10M$ qu'elle a récupérés des sommes détournées par Gilles Vaillancourt pour subventionner des programmes destinés aux enfants dans le besoin sur son territoire.

Le capital devrait générer annuellement 600 000 $ qui seront distribués à des organismes.

En 2017, la somme redistribuée atteindra 300 000 $, la moitié de l'année étant déjà écoulée.

Un comité consultatif sera chargé de donner des orientations à ce fonds.

"Nos actions seront cohérentes et complémentaires avec les cibles de notre nouvelle Politique régionale de développement social" a aussi fait valoir le maire Demers.
