The magnitude of the disaster that occurred last Saturday in Lac-Megantic, a town less than an hour’s drive from the CFMOTO Canada headquarters, has shocked us all.
To help police, firefighters, municipal employees and other volunteers whose work is exceptional and particularly difficult as a result of this tragic event, CFMOTO Canada has provided a 2014 TRACKER 800 UTV vehicle with a value of $13,000 to the municipality of Lac-Megantic.
We would like to thank our dealer Mecano Sport Lac-Megantic and its owner Daniel Mercier for having supported us in our work and for preparing the vehicle.
In addition, all our dealers across the country will be solicited later this week by our team in order to collect more donations.
“We have thought long about the best way to help our friends in Lac-Mégantic. Several options were discussed, but it is ultimately the gift of a vehicle that was chosen because it will help local authorities immediately with their difficult task. Naturally, we offer our deepest sympathies to the bereaved families and all affected by this tragedy.” says Carl Patoine, President of CFMOTO Canada.
We encourage all of our present and future customers, as well as our suppliers to give generously to the Canadian Red Cross clients.
