Mr. Speaker, recently, the Canadian Community Newspapers Association, which represents some 700 members, gave The Chomedey News the Blue Ribbon General Excellence Award for the fourth year in a row.
This award recognizes the outstanding professionalism demonstrated by the editorial team of The Chomedey News , the objectivity and quality of its research, and the excellence of its content.
Its in-depth analysis and critical eye make this Laval newspaper an example of what a community newspaper ought to be.
We are seeing an alarming concentration of the media in Canada; however, The Chomedey News , established in 1993, remains an independent newspaper.
I applaud the editorial team for its work and thank it for its contribution to Laval and to democracy.
