National Volunteer Week, Statements by Members, Volunteering and volunteers

Bénévolat et bénévoles, Déclarations de députés,

Mr. Speaker, April 23 to 29 is National Volunteer Week. Thousands of Canadians in my region volunteer, and I want to thank them for their gift of self and their altruism in helping their communities.

Last Saturday, the Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec awarded medals to 15 people in my riding. I was at the ceremony to express my appreciation for these young people and seniors and their continuing commitment to serving their communities.

On behalf of all my constituents, I want to congratulate Jacques Larivière and Thérèse Gobeil from Nominingue, Marie-Andrée Clermont and Gilles Pilon from Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs, Carmelle Huppé and Marguerite Paquette from Saint-Sauveur, Lucie Lanthier from my home town of Sainte-Lucie, Viviane Courte-Rathwell from Arundel, Renée Deschênes-Dubé from Mont-Laurier, Émilie Gauthier from Mont-Tremblant, Simon Gratton-Laplante from Mont-Laurier, Laurence Latour-Laitre from Sainte-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson, Catherine Mainville form Lac-Saguay, Nicolas Gaudreau from Saint-Sauveur, and Guiliana Desrochers from Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs.

The development of our communities depends on volunteers, and we can never thank them enough.

Monsieur le Président, du 23 au 29 avril, ce sera la Semaine de l'action bénévole. Des milliers de citoyens se dévouent dans ma région et je veux les remercier de leur don de soi et leur altruisme dans le milieu.

Samedi dernier, le lieutenant-gouverneur du Québec a procédé à la remise de médailles à 15 récipiendiaires de ma circonscription. J'étais présent pour témoigner ma reconnaissance envers ces jeunes et ces aînés qui font preuve d'un engagement communautaire soutenu.

Au nom de tous mes concitoyens, je félicite Jacques Larivière et Thérèse Gobeil, de Nominingue; Marie-Andrée Clermont et Gilles Pilon, de Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs; Carmelle Huppé et Marguerite Paquette, de Saint-Sauveur; Lucie Lanthier, de ma ville natale, Sainte-Lucie; Viviane Courte-Rathwell, d'Arundel; Renée Deschênes-Dubé, de Mont-Laurier; Émilie Gauthier, de Mont-Tremblant; Simon Gratton-Laplante, de Mont-Laurier; Laurence Latour-Laitre, de Sainte-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson; Catherine Mainville, de Lac-Saguay; Nicolas Gaudreau, de Saint-Sauveur; et Guiliana Desrochers, de Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs.

Les bénévoles sont indispensables au développement de nos communautés et on ne pourra jamais assez les remercier.
