Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise in the House today to offer congratulations to the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce. The local chamber, in conjunction with the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, recently earned national acclaim with the silver award for the best community leadership project in Canada.
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce recognized the local chamber for its efforts in helping to establish the Prosperity Council of Waterloo Region. The prosperity council includes Communitech, a local technology association, and Canada's Technology Triangle Inc., the economic component of the region's local government.
I invite the House to join me in extending congratulations to the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce on its outstanding leadership and this achievement.
