Issue 666 Volume 3 Number 166
It's Friday, December 9, 2022 and we recognize a good idea when we see one. Gatineau police have set up special ‘neutral zones’ in two parking lots where people who have bought and sold items online can meet, monitored by video camera. The two sites are 590 Gréber Boulevard and 777 de la Carrière Boulevard.
