Mr. Speaker, on June 5, the town of Louiseville paid a glowing tribute to one of its great personalities.
Anthony Delatri had an outstanding 26-year-long career as a cartoonist, working primarily for Le Nouvelliste newspaper. He produced over 8,000 cartoons throughout all those years. His cartoons can be found in several books and museums.
Mr. Delatri was also a great athlete who had an immense influence on his community. He was inducted into the Quebec badminton hall of fame in 1994 and the Mauricie sports hall of fame in 2005.
On his 97th birthday, the town's tennis courts were renamed “Tennis Delatri de Louiseville” in his honour.
I would like to sincerely thank the town of Louiseville, as well as Michel Neveu, who had the inspired idea of paying tribute to Mr. Delatri.
We are proud of you, Mr. Delatri. You are a credit to Louiseville.
