Mr. Speaker, last Friday Quebec City's junior chamber of commerce held its Gala des jeunes personnalités d'affaires. The purpose of this event is to highlight the entrepreneurship and drive of accomplished young professionals who are making a name for themselves in the world of business.
One of these talented individuals is Guildo Griffin, president and general manager of Studio Party Time. Mr. Griffin is a native of the Lower St. Lawrence and in 1994, at the age of 18, he started his own business. Today he owns four dance schools, teaches 5,000 students and employs 60 people.
I would like to congratulate all the young people who were honoured at the gala, not to mention all those who persevere to achieve their dreams. Congratulations to the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Québec and its president, Patrick Gosselin, and his team for their remarkable work.
Thousands of young Canadians are ready to follow in the footsteps of Mr. Griffin. Let us support them.
