Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to announce today that the Raffinerie Jean-Gaulin Ultramar of Lévis has purchased the Davida woodland, a parcel of 65.5 hectares, or, if you prefer, 7 million square feet.
This wooded area located opposite the refinery will be made available to the City of Lévis to be transformed into an urban park. The Davida woodland is an ideal green area, with a magnificent forest, and an unmatched view over the Laurentians, the Appalachians and the St. Lawrence River. This woodland, near the river and the Auberivière golf club, is destined to become a unique and well used park.
This acquisition is yet another demonstration of the commitment of the Raffinerie Jean-Gaulin and Ultramar to work with local authorities to improve the quality of life of the area's residents.
The refinery, in partnership with the employees and various local organizations, makes a contribution to the economic and community development of the area.
