Mr. Speaker, entertainment will abound this summer in Gatineau for Canada 150.
Starting June 30, Jacques Cartier Park will be presenting the spectacular achievements of MosaïCanada, true masterpieces depicting our country’s 150 years of history and culture.
From July 7 to 9, Lac Beauchamp Park will host the Wonders of Sand, a festival of epic proportions for the entire family.
Then, the Cirque du Soleil will set up its big top in Gatineau, where it will hold its show Volta, which is sure to amaze young and old alike all through the month of August.
From August 31 to September 4, La Baie Park will once again be the site of Gatineau’s colourful Hot Air Balloon Festival.
Of course, our city's spirit and vitality will shine through in the block parties that will light up our various neighbourhoods all summer long.
I invite all of my colleagues on both sides of the House to enjoy the summer months in Gatineau.
