Mr. Speaker, over the weekend, I had the chance to attend the Kedgwick vocal music festival in my riding of Madawaska—Restigouche in New Brunswick.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at the talent of the participants at this event and I want to acknowledge the remarkable performances of all those who, despite their stage fright, sang during this festival.
I am also quite pleased to have been able to attend this event, which helped me discover all this talent from my riding and elsewhere. I want to thank the organizing committee for its dedication and commitment to culture and the arts.
Canada abounds with talented artists. My region and all of New Brunswick are no exception. I am sure we will soon see some of these performers make a name for themselves.
