Madam Speaker, while bombs continue to spread terror, calls for peace continue unabated.
I met with young people from the Horizon Soleil elementary school in my riding of Laurentides; they asked me to give the Prime Minister their letters and drawings for him.
In one of these letters, a boy in grade three wrote, “I might have a small suggestion for ending the war: shake hands, make up and share”.
Another young person spoke from the heart, “End the war because the children are afraid; we want everyone to get along”.
Then, there is this poem:
It is important to us If we want to be happy To live in harmony Because for peace War must cease.
To all the Ariels, Kevins, Justines, Samuels, Marie-Èves, Melissas, Jean-Sébastiens and all the others too, you are children of the earth, you are children of peace. May your spontaneous wisdom light our way.
