“It puts us in a lot of trouble”

Castres Mayor Pascal Bugis “does not agree with this decision at all”. Especially since everything was ready and the Castrais were happy to be able to gather as in every final phase of the CO since 2010. “It puts us in great difficulty,” continued the elected official. Especially since the naked mayor does not fully understand the pretext of the heat wave. “Temperatures of 40 degrees are known in Castres and we will know others.”
