Mr. Speaker, at the peak of this storm over three million Canadians were affected by it. Life is returning to normal for most of them. However there still are some 11,000 customers in Quebec, some 25,000 people without power. There are some 600 Canadian forces members still there and they will stay there until the lights come on to assist people who are still suffering from this devastation.
At the peak of this storm, 15,800 military personnel were in service to their fellow Canadians. I am sure everybody in this House will agree with me when I say that they did an exceptional job and we are very proud of them.
