Montreal – February 3rd, 2017 - The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ) was following the conflict between the Union des Producteurs Agricoles (UPA) and the government of Quebec very closely. The Premier of Quebec is set to announce this afternoon that an agreement has been reached between the two parties. The FCMQ is satisfied with the collaboration displayed by both parties as it, not being a party to the negotiations, had been placed in a very delicate position throughout the conflict.

The UPA – Government of Quebec conflict places the FCMQ in a very uncomfortable situation

Further to numerous articles which have appeared in various newspapers throughout Quebec regarding the conflict between the Union des Producteurs Agricoles (UPA) and the government of Quebec, the Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ) wishes to express its extreme discomfort via the two parties involved in this conflict, notably as both are important and vital partners. The FCMQ has neither the expertise, nor the knowledge to take side in this conflict, nor any desire to make any judgement in the matter. The FCMQ is beholden to agricultural producers for the integrity, interconnectedness and sustainability of our trail network, while also to the government of Quebec for the financing of its operations and activities, this via the rebate collected from snowmobile registrations fees and redistributed to the Federation and member clubs through financial aid programs.
