Mr. Speaker, the Centre d’information sur l’Environnement de Longueuil, or CIEL, was founded in 1995 and so is celebrating its 15th anniversary.
CIEL's mission is to promote a healthy and sound ecological environment in Longueuil and it is well-known for its numerous public awareness projects. A variety of lobbying tactics have been used to promote sustainable development activity in many areas. Particularly noteworthy were the implementation and management of recycling in the schools, the adoption of a pesticide bylaw by the City of Longueuil and the conservation of the Midland or striped chorus frog in Vieux-Longueuil's ponds.
On behalf of the community in Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher, I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the Centre d’information sur l’Environnement de Longueuil and its president, Geneviève Audet. Her dedicated team makes it possible for the people of Longueuil to dream of growing up in a cleaner and greener environment. Long live the CIEL.
