La P’tite Grenouille de Rimouski is closing its doors
The co-owner of Bar La P’tite Grenouille in Rimouski, Steven Guimond-Corriveau, confirms the temporary closure of the establishment on his Facebook page. “Since the start of this outbreak in Rimouski, we have been in close communication with Public Health. Although we were not asked to close our doors, we made the decision to temporarily close our establishment while the storm calmed down. We want to be part of the solution, not the problem. We have provided our registers to public health in order to help trace as many people as possible, ”says the man who assures us that his establishment has absolutely nothing to do with the arrival of the promoter of the pornography industry David Hener in Rimouski .
According to TVA Nouvelles, the arrival of this man would be involved in the current outbreak that is hitting Rimouski. Hener would have started his evening in a well-known restaurant-bar in the city, last Friday, before going to the P’tite Grenouille. Still according to TVA, the festive evening would have continued in an apartment where promiscuity between guests would have been at the rendezvous.
