Mr. Speaker, I would like to congratulate two constituents in my riding of Etobicoke North who are among the 2006 recipients of the Prime Minister's Awards for Teaching Excellence and for Excellence in Early Childhood Education. These awards honour outstanding and innovative early childhood educators and elementary and secondary school teachers in all disciplines.
Ms. Kamla Rambaran is a teaching excellence recipient and is receiving the Certificate of Excellence.
Ms. Eleanor Szakacs is an excellence in early childhood education recipient and is receiving the Certificate of Achievement.
Every Canadian has a special memory of a teacher who made a difference in their lives and helped or inspired them to realize their potential. Today we commend the achievement of these teachers and their commitment to excellence because it is in our classrooms and in our schools that we build a better country and a better world.
