Mr. Speaker, it is with a heavy heart that I pay tribute to Marc Cormier, a resident of my riding who died suddenly on January 19 at the age of 48.

Marc was dedicated to promoting physical activity and opportunities for youth to flourish. The day after the federal election, Marc, a triathlete and coach, talked to me about how important an arena was to the community. The Pays-d'en-Haut RCM had been trying to get a sportsplex for decades. Last summer, we announced a $32-million project funded by equal contributions from all three levels of government. The community's proposal was a success thanks in large part to Marc's involvement.

In recognition of his leadership, he was selected as a recipient of the Canada 150 pin. Sadly, he passed away before I could give him that honour. On behalf of the entire community, we would like to express our deepest condolences to his wife, Patricia, and their children, Alexandre, Simon, and Sandrine.

Thank you, Marc. We will miss you so much.

Monsieur le Président, c'est le coeur gros que je rends hommage à Marc Cormier, un résidant de ma circonscription, décédé subitement à l'âge de 48 ans, le 19 janvier dernier.

Marc se dévouait pour la promotion d'activités physiques et l'épanouissement des jeunes. Dès le lendemain de l'élection fédérale, Marc, triathlète et entraîneur, m'a expliqué l'importance de l'aréna pour la collectivité, puisque la MRC des Pays-d'en-Haut revendique un complexe sportif depuis des décennies. L'été dernier, nous annoncions un projet de 32 millions de dollars, financé à parts égales par les trois paliers de gouvernement. Le travail de Marc a grandement contribué à cette réussite pour notre région.

Pour honorer son leadership, on l'a choisi pour recevoir l'épinglette Canada 150. Il est malheureusement parti avant que je n'aie pu lui remettre cette distinction. C'est au nom de toute la communauté que nous offrons nos plus sincères condoléances à sa femme, Patricia, et à leurs enfants, Alexandre, Simon et Sandrine.

Merci, Marc, tu nous manqueras beaucoup.
