Mr. Speaker, I want to take advantage of my last intervention in this House to thank the people of Trois-Rivières for their trust in me and to share my feelings ranging from disappointment to confidence.
I am disappointed that after more than 40 years of activism, we still have not reached our goal; Quebec is still just a province within Canada. The Quebec nation is not recognized by Canada nor by the international community. Only in song is Quebec a country.
I am worried about the future of the Quebec people, whose survival is seriously threatened if it does not react quickly and decide to take full control of its destiny.
I am proud of my track record as the member for Trois-Rivières in terms of my initiatives and the role I played in many issues.
I am confident that a solid majority of Quebeckers will soon realize that the only decent and honourable option for them is sovereignty.
Vive le Quebec, vive le Quebec souverain.
