Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the achievements of two of our paralympic athletes. Hearty congratulations to Roseline Filion and Meaghan Benfeito, who distinguished themselves in synchronized diving.
This duo from my riding, Marc-Aurèle-Fortin, and that of my colleague, the hon. member for Alfred-Pellan, worked hard and brought the bronze medal home to Laval.
With their determination, they have inspired us all, especially young Canadians living with disabilities.
In 2012, they won at the London Games despite injuries and obstacles. Through perseverance, they managed to triumph over the world's best athletes.
I am proud of them and all the athletes who represented us in Rio. Again, congratulations.
