Mr. Speaker, Friday night, two members of my team and I volunteered for Operation Red Nose through the Maison des jeunes de Sainte-Adèle. Last week we did the same thing with the Maison des jeunes de Mont-Laurier. Next week we will help the Fondation de l'école du Méandre de Rivière-Rouge, and on December 23, we will volunteer with the Maison des jeunes de Mont-Tremblant.

I have been volunteering for Operation Red Nose for the past four years because I believe in the cause. Since 1984, all across the country, volunteers have been giving their time until the wee hours of the morning to help get people and their vehicles home safely during the festive season.

I am so proud to count my team members and myself among the 50,000 volunteers who help save lives thanks to this wonderful driving service.

I wish to commend the founders of Operation Red Nose and those who keep it rolling today.

Monsieur le Président, vendredi soir, deux adjoints de mon équipe et moi-même avons participé à l'Opération Nez rouge de la Maison des jeunes de Sainte-Adèle. La semaine passée, nous l'avons fait avec la Maison des jeunes de Mont-Laurier. La semaine prochaine, on le fera avec les organisateurs de la Fondation de l'école du Méandre de Rivière-Rouge. Le 23 décembre, on le fera avec la Maison des jeunes de Mont-Tremblant.

Depuis quatre ans, je participe à l'Opération Nez rouge, parce que j'y crois. Depuis 1984, partout au pays, des bénévoles se dévouent jusqu'aux petites heures du matin, afin d'assurer la rentrée sécuritaire à la maison, des conducteurs et de leurs véhicules pendant les festivités du temps des Fêtes.

Je suis fier que mon équipe d'adjoints et moi-même comptions parmi les plus de 50 000 bénévoles qui contribuent à sauver des vies grâce à ce merveilleux service de raccompagnement.

Chapeau à ceux qui ont lancé l'Opération Nez Rouge, et à ceux qui la perpétuent.
