Hanukkah, Statements by Members,

Déclarations de députés, Hannoucah,

Mr. Speaker, it is a great honour to rise and speak here today after working in the back rooms of this place for many years.

I want to begin by thanking the people of Laurentides—Labelle for placing their trust in me and this new government.

The riding of Laurentides—Labelle is the most beautiful riding in Canada. It is where I was born and raised. Our 43 municipalities, spread over 20,000 km2, can count on me to give them a strong voice here in Ottawa and across Canada.

In honour of my great-great-uncle Leon Crestohl, who served 13 years in this place, and my great-great-grandfather Hirsch Wolofsky, the founder of Canada's first Yiddish daily, I wish everyone Chanukah Sameach.

When a flame is lit, its benefit is not restricted to the one lighting it; it is for everyone.

Let us all benefit from the flame of this Hanukkah in the year 5776.

Joyeux Hanukkah.

Monsieur le Président, j'ai l'immense honneur de prendre la parole ici, aujourd'hui, après avoir travaillé dans les coulisses de la Chambre pendant plusieurs années.

Je tiens d'abord à remercier les citoyens de Laurentides—Labelle de la confiance qu'ils ont investie en moi et en notre nouveau gouvernement.

La circonscription de Laurentides—Labelle est la plus belle au Canada. C'est celle où je suis né et où j'ai grandi. Nos 43 municipalités, dispersées sur 20 000 km2, peuvent compter sur moi pour leur donner une voix forte ici, à Ottawa, et partout au Canada.

En hommage à mon arrière-grand-oncle Leon Crestohl, qui a siégé pendant 13 ans dans cette enceinte, et à mon arrière-arrière-grand-père Hirsch Wolofsky, le fondateur du premier journal yiddish au Canada, je souhaite à tout le monde Chanukah Sameach.

Une flamme qui brille profite à tout le monde, pas seulement à celui qui l'a allumée.

Profitons tous de cette flamme en cette Hanouka de l'année 5776.

Joyeuse Hanouka.
