Anne Minh-Thu Quach NDP Salaberry—Suroît, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-289, An Act to establish Canadian Optimist Movement Awareness Day.

Mr. Speaker, I am very happy to stand today to ask the House to establish Canadian Optimist movement awareness day, which would be the first Thursday in February. The movement began in 1924 and now has nearly 600 clubs across Canada, each of which helps about 80 young people. This movement helps our young people flourish, nurtures their talents, and recognizes their progress. I hope that many Canadians will join the movement and that this day will be established.
