Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to announce to the House that the Quebec Order of Architects has named the Châteauguay Municipal Library and its architects as the winners of its award of excellence in architecture.
The official presentation of the award will take place at Châteauguay on October 11. This past August 30, the Quebec Order of Architects also ranked the Châteauguay Municipal Library among the top three finalists in the cultural project category.
The jury was won over by its warm and welcoming atmosphere and described the building has having achieved a wonderful balance of distinctiveness and civility.
The library also drew attention for its unique geothermal heating system, which extracts heat from the ground to heat the entire building.
The Bloc Québécois congratulates all those who had a hand in this splendid success. Long may this jewel in Châteauguay's crown continue to sparkle.
