Mr. Speaker, the town of Alma in Lac-Saint-Jean provided the setting for a major event this week, a trade show hosted by the Unmanned Aerial System, or UAS, Centre of Excellence.
The TECH DEMO event was organized to showcase the latest technology developments in the UAS industry. The presentations were truly awe-inspiring. The innovation demonstrated by this centre of excellence in Lac-Saint-Jean impressed Nav Canada, Transport Canada and the National Research Council Canada.
I am very proud of the amazing work done by the UAS Centre of Excellence and especially by the mayor of Alma, Marc Asselin, and the CEO of the UAS Centre of Excellence, Marc Moffatt. The UAS Centre of Excellence is playing a key role in regional sustainable development. I am proud to support the success of Lac-Saint-Jean.
