Mr. Speaker, Remembrance Day is next week.

I rise to pay tribute to three veterans from my region who passed away in 2016. These inspiring Canadians fought for our country and to defend the values we uphold.

I wish to salute the memory of Jacques Viger of Nominingue, who passed away on October 17 at the age of 93. In 1944, Mr. Viger was 19 years old and a soldier with the Royal 22nd Regiment when he suffered serious injuries to both legs in Italy.

I want to pay homage to John Dubeau of Arundel, who fought across western Europe in the Second World War. He was decorated by both Canada and France. Always a personality, he left us on August 17, at the ripe young age of 101.

I also salute the memory of Roméo Rock of Saint-Faustin—Lac-Carré, who passed away on July 23 at the age of 89. He gave two years of his life to military service in 1944 and 1945.

I want to pay homage to all veterans from the Laurentian region and across the country. Lest we forget.

Monsieur le Président, ce sera bientôt le jour du Souvenir.

J'aimerais rendre hommage à trois vétérans de ma région qui nous ont quittés en 2016. Ces hommes inspirants ont combattu pour notre pays et défendu les valeurs que nous protégeons.

Je salue la mémoire de Jacques Viger, de Nominingue, décédé le 17 octobre à l'âge de 93 ans. En 1944, à l'âge de 19 ans, militaire dans le Royal 22e Régiment, M. Viger a été gravement blessé aux jambes, en Italie.

Je souhaite rendre hommage à John Dubeau, d'Arundel, qui a combattu d'un bout à l'autre de l'Europe de l'Ouest durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il a été décoré par le Canada et la France. Cet homme plus grand que nature nous a quittés le 17 août dernier, au tout jeune âge de 101 ans.

Je salue également la mémoire de Roméo Rock, de Saint-Faustin—Lac-Carré, décédé le 23 juillet à l'âge de 89 ans, qui a donné deux ans de sa vie au service militaire, en 1944 et 1945.

Hommage à tous nos vétérans des Laurentides et de partout au pays! Nous n'oublierons jamais.
