Mr. Speaker,

Now that January has finally passed
This bitter cold just cannot last
As temperatures begin to climb
February brings winter carnival time
Head to Sainte-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson to skate
Or to Brébeuf for a dancing date
Sainte-Adèle and Huberdeau fill with sledding squeals
While at Ferme-Neuve they race snowmobiles
In Val-Morin and Notre-Dame-du-Laus, the fishing divine
While Mont-Tremblant is the place to dine
Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts can toot its own horn
Cause that's where Bonhomme Carnaval was born
Winter is about more than clearing snow
So Laurentides—Labelle is the place to go
That is why I give three cheers
To community members and volunteers
All of them are truly key
To enjoying this great party.

Monsieur le Président,

Alors que janvier est terminé
et les grands froids presque tous passés;
Février est le mois idéal
pour célébrer l'hiver au carnaval!
En patinant sur le lac à Sainte-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson;
en dansant à Brébeuf au rythme des rigodons;
En s'amusant à glisser à Sainte-Adèle ou Huberdeau;
en pratiquant la pêche blanche à Val-Morin ou Notre-Dame-du-Laus;
À Ferme-Neuve au Grand-Prix sur glace;
ou à Mont-Tremblant sur l'une des nombreuses terrasses;
D'un bout à l'autre de Laurentides—Labelle,
pour nous l'hiver c'est bien plus qu'user de la pelle.
Ça fait d'ailleurs longtemps que c'est une tradition:
Bonhomme Carnaval est né chez nous, à Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts.
Je lève mon chapeau aux bénévoles et membres de la communauté,
à qui l'on doit l'organisation de toutes ces activités;
Et à toutes celles et ceux qui en profitent à fond;
vivant pleinement l'hiver dans ma circonscription!
