Mr. Speaker, the Longueuil municipal retirees association is celebrating its 20th anniversary this week.
The association's more than 260 members work to ensure retirees' well-being by offering help and organizing various activities to improve their quality of life.
Those of us living in large cities too often forget that there are many people devoted to improving their communities and promoting their municipalities. Without their invaluable contribution, our society would be significantly poorer.
Today I would like to pay tribute to all of the people who have watched Longueuil grow, who have contributed to its success and who have served its population for many years.
I would like to thank them for their commitment over the years and say how proud I am to represent them in the House of Commons.
