Déclarations de députés, Province de Québec, Sentier Transcanadien, Sentiers récréatifs,

Mr. Speaker, I recently had the pleasure of celebrating the 100% connection of Quebec's section of the Trans Canada Trail. Le P'tit Train du Nord is the section of the trail that crosses the riding of Laurentides—Labelle. It is a roughly 200-km linear park and a source of pride for everyone in my region. Thanks to the Government of Canada's financial contribution to maintaining and improving this essential infrastructure, tens of thousands of locals and tourists enjoy direct access to the largest recreational pathway in the world.

The P'tit train du Nord, its scenery, mountains, rivers, and farms showcase the history of development in the Laurentides region. Today, this section of the Trans Canada Trail is used by hikers, cyclists, cross-country skiers, and snowmobilers, and is another reason why the Laurentides—Labelle region shines in Quebec, Canada, and the entire world.

Monsieur le Président, dernièrement, j'ai eu le plaisir de célébrer le raccordement à 100 % de la portion québécoise du Grand Sentier transcanadien. La portion qui sillonne la circonscription de Laurentides—Labelle fait près de 200 kilomètres, c'est le parc linéaire Le P'tit Train du Nord. C'est une source de fierté pour tous les citoyens de ma région. Grâce à la participation financière du gouvernement du Canada pour le maintien et l'amélioration de cette infrastructure essentielle, des dizaines de milliers de résidants et de visiteurs bénéficient d'un accès direct au plus grand sentier récréatif au monde.

Le P'tit train du Nord, ses paysages, ses montagnes, ses rivières et ses fermes régionales nous rappellent l'histoire du développement des Laurentides. Aujourd'hui, utilisé par les marcheurs, les cyclistes, les fondeurs et les motoneigistes, cette portion du Grand Sentier transcanadien est une autre raison qui explique pourquoi la région des Laurentides—Labelle rayonne au Québec, au Canada et dans le monde entier.
