Mr. Speaker, I rise today to invite hon. members and all Canadians to visit my riding of Leeds—Grenville this year.
There are a number of celebrations taking place in my historic riding.
First, the Rideau Canal celebrates its 175th anniversary this year with events and activities taking place throughout the corridor.
Brockville, one of the prettiest communities in Ontario, also celebrates its 175th anniversary of incorporation as a police village, a new designation at the time. This was two years before York, which became Toronto, and Hamilton were incorporated.
Kemptville, a fast growing community in my riding, celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.
In the fall, we host the annual International Plowing Match near Crosby.
It is always a great time to visit Leeds—Grenville, and this year there are at least four more great reasons.
