“It is absolutely despicable”: donations collected during the Grande Guignolée of stolen media in Saint-Lambert –

The mayor of Longueuil, Catherine Fournier, launched a call for solidarity on Saturday in response to a regrettable theft that targeted a warehouse in Saint-Lambert where donations were being collected during the Grande Guignolée of the media of the Riviera in the south.

“In total, 50 boxes of food, new clothes and baby items were unscrupulously stolen at the expense of poor families. This is absolutely despicable,” the mayor complained violently on Facebook.
