Mr. Speaker, I would like to acknowledge Noël Audet's exceptional contribution to the well-being of Canadians.
One of Mr. Audet's favourite things to do is to donate blood. Mr. Audet hails from Bourassa and made his first blood donation at Héma-Québec in 1969. He is now at his 320th donation.
Every blood donation helps save four lives, which means that Mr. Audet has changed the lives of 1,280 people. This contribution is significant when we consider that it takes 1,000 blood donations every day to meet the needs of Quebec's hospitals. The Prime Minister of Canada has extended his heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Audet.
I am very pleased to award the MP's medal for Bourassa to Mr. Noël Audet.
My congratulations to him.
