Pointe-Claire flag is flown at Kilimanjaro’s summit

The mayor of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and City Council members are proud to announce that the City’s flag was flown at the top of Kilimanjaro, the world’s fourth highest peak, in Africa, at an altitude of 5,895 metres.

The feat was accomplished last week by the City of Pointe-Claire’s Director of Administrative Services and Treasurer, Ms. Marie-Josée Boissonneault.

“Ms. Boissonneault’s personal initiative promotes Pointe-Claire worldwide and also indicates that we have the health of our staff and all of our citizens at heart,” said the mayor.

“As Ms. Boissonneault has demonstrated so well, the little things that we do every day for our well-being can take us very far,” added Mayor Trudeau. ”We commend her wholeheartedly, and we are delighted that she brought our flag with her right to the top.”
