Good evening, I would like to know some issues related to cities in the region?

In Quebec, several cities were created thanks to the exploitation of resources. Sometimes these cities have only one sector of activity and these cities are called “mono-industrial”.
Although these cities allow several people to have a job, there are also several risks associated with it. Indeed, cities that depend on a single sector of economic activity will be very vulnerable to economic fluctuations and business decisions. For example, if the company decided to close its doors, there would be a rapid devitalization of this same single-industrial city. This is, among other things, what happened to the town of Gagnon in Quebec.
