Mr. Speaker, I would like to salute the contribution of an extraordinary volunteer in my riding.
I am pleased to announce that, on June 12, Christiane Blanchet received the off-road vehicles volunteer recognition award of excellence from Quebec's transport minister, Norman MacMillan.
Now in its third year, this award honours people who have made a major contribution to their community through their involvement and activity.
As an intrepid, energetic and vital member of the Club motoneige des Plaines in Lotbinière, Ms. Blanchet has helped keep the club going for many years.
On behalf of all members of Lotbinière snowmobile clubs, I am very pleased to congratulate Christiane Blanchet on receiving this award of excellence.
