Conseil de la culture des Laurentides, Culture and creativity, Statements by Members

Conseil de la culture des Laurentides, Culture et créativité, Déclarations de députés

Mr. Speaker, on November 9, the Conseil de la culture des Laurentides hosted the 28th annual Grands prix de la culture des Laurentides. More than half of the finalists were from my riding, Laurentides—Labelle, and I am very proud to say today that seven out of the eight winners are people and organizations from back home.

I congratulate Jessica Viau, winner of the Jeune relève award, Lortie et Martin, winner of the Art-Affaires award, Théâtre le Patriote, recipient of the Ambassadeur award, Polyvalente Saint-Joseph, winner of the Art-Éducation award, Caroline Dusseault, recipient of the Passion award, Michel Robichaud, winner of the Excellence award, and Jean-François Beauchemin, who was crowned Créateur de l'année dans les Laurentides.

All these recipients, as well as the hundreds of people involved in my riding, are proof that culture is essential for regions like mine to grow and prosper. Whether it is through dance, theatre, music, literature, or other forms of art, they give the very best of themselves to the people of Laurentides—Labelle, and for that, I thank them.

Monsieur le Président, le 9 novembre, le Conseil de la culture des Laurentides donnait la 28e édition des Grands Prix de la culture des Laurentides. Plus de la moitié des finalistes provenaient de ma circonscription, Laurentides—Labelle, et je suis fier de dire aujourd'hui que les gagnants de sept des huit catégories sont des gens et des organismes de chez nous.

Je félicite Jessica Viau, gagnante du prix Jeune relève, Lortie et Martin, gagnant du prix Art-Affaires, le Théâtre le Patriote, lauréat du prix Ambassadeur, la Polyvalente Saint-Joseph, qui a remporté le prix Art-Éducation, Caroline Dusseault, lauréate du prix Passion, Michel Robichaud, gagnant du prix Excellence, et Jean-François Beauchemin, sacré Créateur de l'année dans les Laurentides.

Tous ces récipiendaires, ainsi que les centaines de gens impliqués dans ma circonscription, sont la preuve que la culture est essentielle au développement et au rayonnement des régions comme la mienne. Que ce soit par la danse, le théâtre, la musique, la littérature ou bien d'autres formes d'art, ils transmettent le meilleur d'eux-mêmes aux citoyens de Laurentides—Labelle, et pour cela, je les remercie.
