Circonscriptions électorales, Déclarations de députés, Ski

Mr. Speaker, ski season is just a few weeks away, and the people of Laurentides—Labelle cannot wait for it to start.

The Laurentian mountains are the birthplace of skiing in Canada. Thanks to pioneers like “Jackrabbit” Johannsen, Émile Cochand, Lucile Wheeler, and even my own grandmother, Pat Paré, skiing has become an industry.

Alpine skiing, snowboarding, telemark skiing, and cross-country skiing are made possible through the efforts of thousands of men and women across my riding, and I want to pay tribute to them today.

I applaud all of the ski instructors and trainers, customer service workers, administrative staff, cooks, ski patrollers, trail groomers, maintenance workers, mechanics and technicians, lift operators, parking attendants, rental technicians, and food service and accommodation workers who work hard every winter to make our region the ultimate skiing destination.

I want to thank them and wish them a great ski season.

Monsieur le Président, les citoyens de Laurentides—Labelle sont fébriles, puisqu'une nouvelle saison de ski débutera dans quelques semaines.

Les Laurentides sont le berceau du ski au Canada, et c'est grâce à nos pionniers, comme « Jackrabbit » Johannsen, Émile Cochand, Lucile Wheeler et même ma grand-mère, Pat Paré, que le ski est devenu une véritable industrie.

La pratique du ski alpin, de la planche à neige, du télémark ou du ski de fond est rendue possible grâce aux milliers de femmes et d'hommes qui s'activent d'un bout à l'autre de ma circonscription, et c'est à eux que je veux rendre hommage aujourd'hui.

Je félicite tous ceux qui oeuvrent, lors de chaque saison hivernale, à faire de notre région la destination de ski par excellence: les moniteurs, les entraîneurs, les responsables du service à la clientèle, le personnel administratif, les cuisiniers, les patrouilleurs, les traceurs de pistes, les employés d'entretien, les mécaniciens et les techniciens, les responsables des remontées et des stationnements, les conseillers à la location, ainsi que les travailleurs de la restauration et de l'hébergement.

Je les remercie et je leur souhaite une excellente saison de ski.
