Mr. Speaker, today I wish to acknowledge the retirement of veteran reporter Daniel L'Heureux.
He has been on Parliament Hill for 26 years and has 45 years of journalism experience in total, including 10 years at La Presse and 30 years at Radio Canada. He says journalism was something he just stumbled into at La Voix de l'Est when he was looking for work as a student.
Mr. L'Heureux, who says he loves the art of reporting news as it happens and the spontaneity that live television has to offer, was part of our journalistic landscape on the Hill.
This television reporter is quick to decry the public's cynicism about politics and, as he bows out, emphasizes the importance of getting out and voting.
My Bloc Québécois colleagues and I pay tribute to Mr. L'Heureux's important contribution as a newscaster to public debate. We wish him many happy moments with his family in the years to come.
