Mr. Speaker, today, May 15, is recognized by the United Nations as International Day of Families.
This day provides us with an opportunity to reflect on the new realities facing the modern family. Social, technological and economic changes have significantly changed the make-up of the so-called traditional family unit.
This day must be an occasion to reflect on the evolution of the major role played by the family, which is the cornerstone of our society.
In spite of above-mentioned changes, one thing remains certain: generations follow one another, but the family will always play a fundamental role by providing our children with an essential and special environment to foster their development.
On this International Day of Families, I wish everyone the very best.
