Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to draw hon. members' attention to the fact that this is regional pride week in Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean. It is an opportunity for all residents of the region to show their attachment to their history and their culture. The regional flag and anthem will hold pride of place in the celebrations.
This will be the last time Paul Lemieux will chair the event. As honorary chairman of regional pride week, he has devoted eight years to its success. I am sure that his departure will leave a big empty space in the organization of the event.
On behalf of all the people of Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean, I wish Mr. Lemieux all the best in his future endeavours. I will take advantage of this opportunity to also pass my best wishes for an excellent regional pride week to all the people of Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean.
