    The City of Sainte-Thérèse has not been able to deglaze the streets for two days because she forgot to renew its operating licence of heavy vehicles.

    A vehicle of the municipality of the Laurentians took a hooking minor with the car of a citizen, last Saturday.

    According to our sources, the police officer who intervened found that the truck was not registered in the register of owners and operators of heavy vehicles.

    The police has demanded that all trucks are locked in the garage.

    The City was eager to apply for the permit on Monday, and the trucks were back on the road in the afternoon.

    “We arrived Monday morning and we were told that the trucks were not moving because the permit had not been renewed,” says an employee of St. Therese who prefers to remain anonymous.


    “There is someone somewhere who has not done his job. And this is really not a safe place for our citizens, ” says Michel Millette, a city councilman.

    The trucks which have been immobilized are typically used for the loading of the snow and spreading of salt. By chance, the weather has been favourable the end of last week.

    The same mistake twice

    According to the Commission des transports du Québec (CTQ), the inscription of the City on the registry was expired since 14 December, two days before the policeman realizing it.

    The CTQ claims to have sent a renewal notice on November 4, in the City of Sainte-Thérèse. On 7 December, the municipality has sent a cheque without, however, complete the necessary document to the update of the information.

    The CTQ has, therefore, returned the cheque and form by mail to the City asking to fill in the documents.

    Sainte-Therese made a second time the same error in returning a check without filling in the form.

    Without a permit, the City is subject to a fine of 500 to 1500 $.

    The City of Sainte-Thérèse has declined our interview requests.
