Mr. Speaker, from Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs to the Petawaga ZEC, by way of Lantier, Huberdeau, and Notre-Dame-du-Laus, I travelled more than 10,000 kilometres this summer to meet with the residents of the 43 municipalities in my riding.

I joined hundreds of young people at an aviation open house organized as part of the young aviators program in Sainte-Anne-du-Lac and Mont Tremblant. I met with more than 100 employers, community organizations, and students who were benefiting from the Canada summer jobs program. I attended more than 100 community activities, festivals and events, where I congratulated and thanked the organizers and volunteers who get involved in our communities and without whom there could be no community events.

I often feel like I have the best job in the world, because it allows me to meet people and spend time with them. People are the heart and soul of a region. I can say without a doubt that Laurentides—Labelle is the most beautiful riding in Canada.

Monsieur le Président, de Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs à la ZEC Petawaga, en passant par Lantier, Huberdeau et Notre-Dame-du-Laus, j'ai parcouru cet été plus de 10 000 kilomètres sur la route pour rencontrer les résidants des 43 municipalités de chez nous.

J'ai participé aux découvertes de l'aviation avec des centaines de jeunes lors des journées du programme jeunes en vol de Sainte-Anne-du-Lac et de Mont-Tremblant. J'ai rencontré plus d'une centaine d'employeurs, d'organismes communautaires et d'étudiants qui ont bénéficié du programme Emplois d'été Canada. J'ai participé à plus d'une centaine d'activités communautaires, de festivals et d'événements au cours desquels j'ai pu féliciter et remercier les organisateurs et les bénévoles qui s'impliquent dans nos communautés et sans lesquels celles-ci ne fonctionneraient pas.

Je me dis souvent que j'ai le plus beau métier au monde, parce qu'il me permet de rencontrer les gens et d'être avec eux. Ce sont ces gens qui font l'unicité d'une région. Sans l'ombre d'un doute, j'affirme haut et fort que Laurentides-Labelle est la plus belle circonscription du Canada.
