Clarification on the May 9 article in La Presse.

Clarification - May 9, 2024

 

The funding required to deploy the return sites will be in place shortly, as mentioned to the journalist, and operations in this regard are proceeding normally. The letter of guarantee referred to in the article was not an essential condition for this funding to be put in place.

Furthermore, contrary to what La Presse reports, the CNESST's intervention at our Granby return location is part of a standard intervention file and does not constitute an investigation. Furthermore, it should be remembered that, contrary to what La Presse wrote on April 24, employees at the return sites have never carried out fund transfers or handled large sums of money, and have no access to such equipment. These operations are currently carried out by a specialized firm.
