Mr. Speaker, this Saturday, June 23, the vision of our former leader, Jack Layton, will be honoured at the opening of Jack Layton Park in his hometown of Hudson, Quebec.
Formerly known as the Hudson Marina, the park offers a magnificent view of the Lac des Deux-Montagnes.
The park will commemorate the legacy of Jack Layton, who spent his youth in Hudson, on the lake, and was very involved in the community there throughout his political career.
This park will serve to remind us of Jack and his legacy, that we should hold on to our optimism, move forward with love and keep focused on the true values of Canadians, values such as diversity, tolerance and social justice.
I am proud to inaugurate the Jack Layton Park in my riding and I invite all members to celebrate with us on June 23.
