Fire prevention

Signature capsule BBQ

Using the BBQ


The Barbecue: Watch your summer cooker!

Roll on summer and the kitchen on the barbecue! But beware of the risk of fire! Make sure to regularly clean the grills and burners as well as check the supply ducts. Also, always be vigilant and never leave the food you cook unattended. Do not forget, the bottle must always be stored securely.

Good grill!!

What's more pleasant than to contemplate a few deer that feed two steps from your
window. Although you have good intentions in feeding the deer, this practice has many
negative consequences on these wild animals and this, particularly during the winter season
(according to the Ministry of Sustainable Development, the Environment, Wildlife and Parks).

The negative effects of this contribution from food can be many:

  • Diseases, parasites, and mortality caused by consumption of inadequate food;
  • Road Accidents when feeding sites are located close to roads;
  • Poaching (feeding the deer out of season to facilitate their hunting from a short
  • distance);
  • Domestication of deer (inhibition of fear and dependence on humans for food);
  • Loss of seasonal migration behaviour;
  • Presence of deer outside of their ravages, in environments less favorable to their
  • survival in winter.

In general, the deer have no need for any input of food by humans. They live under our
climate thanks to two major adaptations in winter:

  1. They modify their eating habits by limiting the ingestion of food and using the reserves of fats they accumulate during the summer and autumn;
  2. They reduce their movements by leaving their habitats of summer during the first heavy snowfall to regroup in the denser ground cover or the cover of softwood lumber, the slopes and exposed areas reduce the accumulation of snow.

The white-tailed is a wild animal that is part of the natural heritage of Quebec. It is the
responsibility of all citizens to retain a healthy livestock, without feeding the deer in an
inappropriate manner and to attract them.
