Mr. Speaker, students are the future leaders of our communities, and I think it is important to encourage them and recognize their contributions.
That is why I want to recognize Georges-Philippe Gadoury-Sansfaçon, a mathematics and applied psychology student at Bishop's University. This year, this young man from Bedford was awarded the 3M National Student Fellowship, which recognizes 10 Canadian students who have demonstrated leadership and involvement on campus and in their communities.
Georges-Philippe helped design a service to assist professors in finding innovative solutions to pandemic-related challenges. His work modernized classrooms and helped hundreds of students with their virtual learning during a turbulent school year.
This award is one of many honours he has received during his academic career. He was also selected to participate in a forum for the world's 100 most promising young researchers.
I congratulate Georges-Philippe for all of his accomplishments, and I hope he keeps up the excellent work.
