Mr. Speaker, I would like to begin by wishing my son, Gabriel, a happy birthday, as he turns six today.

The work we do in this House is for him.
This week we are celebrating Hooked on School Days, which highlights the hard work and efforts of our students.
Whether it is creating favourable learning environments or connecting youth with inspiring role models, we can now play a role in encouraging perseverance among the young people in our communities to help them reach their full potential.
I invite my colleagues to actively participate in this social challenge by recognizing success and encouraging young people in their communities, since all such actions contribute to their success. That is what I have done for the primary schools in Alfred-Pellan, where grade five and six students who have excelled will receive a certificate of recognition.
I congratulate those students for all they do every day to contribute to their own success.
