Mr. Speaker, I rise in the House today to congratulate Mr. André Rousseau, one of the members of my constituency, on his exemplary voluntary service in Lithuania.
Mr. Rousseau was sent to Lithuania on assignment with the Canadian Executive Service Organization, CESO, to assist with the marketing and management of a local hotel. While there, Mr. Rousseau met with department managers, analyzed department operations and made recommendations for improvement. He provided advice on management structure, specialized job training and qualification upgrading. He also prepared and presented reports on a variety of elements of hotel operations.
Mr. Rousseau exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism that is characteristic of Canadians. I applaud him on his willingness to serve others and welcome other hon. members of the House to do the same.
