Faced with prospect of a serious lack of under-age drinking and rampant drug use come August, North Western Quebecers raced to ensure, the seemingly cancelled Rodeo Du Camion, would find it’s legs again. There have been a few announcements over the past week assuring the public that they are indeed on the right track to host the annual event this summer.
A lack of 60,000 tourists would sure of been felt on both the Quebec and Ontario sides of the border since there are rumours that beer is not the only thing purchased during the event. Apparently petrol, food sales, camping supplies and clothing also see sales spike leading up to the event and producing revenue for the surrounding areas.
It looks like both the community and local volunteers have banded together to prove this is a QuebexiCAN event, and not a QuebexiCAN’T event.
