Mr. Speaker, I would like to stand today to applaud the nurses of our communities and our country on National Nursing Week.
Nurses deal with difficult circumstances daily, both emotionally and physically, as frontline medical staff. Their jobs are tremendously challenging and they face many difficulties every day. Our nurses are our everyday heroes.
I would like to pay a special tribute to the nurses of Humber River Regional Hospital in York West for the wonderful job they do, and especially to Cathy, my daughter, an emergency nurse at Humber Hospital.
I wish to say God bless all of them, and on behalf of the constituents of York West, I wish to express our thanks.
