Grégory Doucet is thus implementing one of the flagship promises of his campaign.

During the committee’s examination of the climate bill on March 15, the deputies postponed the ban on heated terraces of cafes and restaurants to April 2022, to take into account the impact of the health crisis on the sector. . The text was to translate the announcement, made last summer by Barbara Pompili, of a ban on these terraces, which are harmful to the environment. The Minister of Ecological Transition then indicated that the measure would not be applied before spring 2021, already because of the Covid-19 crisis.
