Mr. Speaker, last Sunday, the ninth annual Soirée des Masques was held. This tribute to Quebec theatre recognizes the artists, writers, directors and actors who share a passion for their art.
In addition to highlighting their accomplishments, this celebration is an opportunity for the public to see the breadth, diversity and richness of Quebec theatre.
This year, the Académie québécoise du théâtre decided to honour a man of the theatre, an actor and director originally from Thetford Mines, Paul Hébert. This man, who has dedicated his life to the theatre, received the Hommage de l'Académie award for his body of work.
On behalf of the people of Frontenac—Mégantic, I am very proud to congratulate Paul Hébert, a master of his craft.
