Mr. Speaker, last month, I had the opportunity to welcome my neighbour to the north, the hon. Minister of Health, to École des Pionniers in Quispamsis.
The students and teachers at École des Pionniers are living proof of the vitality of francophone minority communities in Fundy Royal and across Canada. As the only French-language elementary school in Fundy Royal, École des Pionniers gives our children the opportunity to learn French in a positive environment.
The minister and I reiterated our commitment to them, and they know that their federal government will always support them and their language rights.
I would like to thank the principal, staff and students at École des Pionniers for their different perspectives and their warm welcome.
We support Franco-Ontarians and linguistic minorities across Canada.
