A group of individuals calling themselves Vision Champlain has recently surfaced. Founded mainly by L’Orignal residents, the group aims at politically representing Champlain’s communities with a unified voice.

The group has already sent a mass email to a select 100+ individuals with the hope of recruiting members and candidates.

In the email message, they present themselves as an electoral team of “concerned citizens who believe it is high time to bring new and innovative ideas to the Township’s leadership and council table.”

According to an anonymous source, the group will be meeting on this, the week of February 4, 2018, before going public with any details. The meeting is not open to the general public.
