Mr. Speaker, I would like to acknowledge the service of the 99 municipal councillors and mayors in my riding, many of whom served for a very long time, who did not run for re-election on November 5. I would also like to thank the 213 candidates who ran for the 304 municipal positions but were not elected. Lastly, I would like to congratulate the 146 newly elected and 153 re-elected officials who are returning to or changing their positions, whether as municipal councillors, mayors, or reeves, in the 43 municipalities and three RCMs in Laurentides—Labelle, as well as the five people who will eventually join them to fill the vacant positions.

These 611 people who got involved in the process of municipal governance are indisputable proof of the civic and community engagement that epitomizes the Laurentian region.

Although there are almost as many elected officials in my riding as there are members in the House, my team and I will offer them our full co-operation in advancing the issues that matter to the entire region. By working together, we will move forward on the many issues that are important to the well-being of our citizens.

Monsieur le Président, j'aimerais souligner le service, de longue date dans plusieurs cas, des 99 conseillers municipaux et maires de ma circonscription qui n'ont pas sollicité un nouveau mandat lors de l'élection du 5 novembre dernier. Je veux aussi remercier les 213 candidats aux 304 postes municipaux qui se sont présentés mais qui n'ont pas été retenus par leur électorat. Enfin, je veux féliciter les 146 nouveaux élus et les 153 élus qui reprennent ou changent leur poste de conseiller municipal, de maire ou de préfet dans les 43 municipalités et les trois MRC de Laurentides—Labelle, ainsi que les cinq personnes qui vont éventuellement les rejoindre pour occuper les postes qui demeurent non comblés.

Ces 611 personnes qui se sont directement engagées dans le processus de gouvernance municipale sont la preuve incontestable de l'engagement civique et communautaire typique des Laurentides.

Alors qu'il y a presque autant d'élus municipaux dans ma circonscription qu'il y a de députés à la Chambre, mon équipe et moi allons leur offrir notre entière collaboration pour faire avancer les enjeux de toute la région. C'est en travaillant ensemble que nous ferons progresser de nombreux dossiers d'importance pour le mieux-être de nos concitoyens.
