Mr. Speaker, I rise today to highlight the importance of the French language. It is one of Canada's founding languages and part of our identity. I am so convinced that our great country is stronger for having adopted bilingualism that after I was elected to represent a region in Ontario where the majority of people are anglophone, I decided to learn French. Today, I am reaffirming my commitment to always promote the French language and culture. I want to sincerely thank the francophone community of London for working tirelessly to preserve its culture.
Thank you for your historic resistance to Doug Ford's policies.
