At the Mont-Jolie courthouse, part of the ceiling fell in the waiting room yesterday morning.

The incident took place yesterday around 11:10 am inside the Town Hall of Mont-Joli.

“Our construction contractor has been warned. The courthouse activities are suspended for the remainder of the day. They should resume normally tomorrow ”, indicated Sonia levesque, the director of communications for the City of Mont-Joli.

According to information from the local newspaper, there were no injuries. A citizen dropped him a minute earlier because he was sitting just below the ceiling.

To avoid delays, the palace hearings scheduled for yesterday took place in the council chamber of the Town Hall.
