Countless attempts have since been made to find a new police force by the Solidarity Co-op, to no avail. The result: the activities offered on the municipal beach of Carlton-sur-Mer have been suspended for a few days. Dozens of seasonal jobs were also threatened.

The steps taken by Écovoile Baie-des-Chaleurs have finally paid off. Its chairman, Matteo Boudreaux, is very happy with this result, because we were afraid of having to give up the season at the beginning.
