Mr. Gilles Gregoire (Lapointe):
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to join with the others and pay tribute to those who are today celebrating their 25th anniversary in the House of Commons.
Twenty five years is a long time, but I am sure it must bring back fond memories to those concerned.
We believe those five hon. members of the House of Commons have well served their land, their country, and have worked with sincerity and dedication for the interest of the people. We wish them many more years among us for we, the younger members, do benefit from their experience and this helps and encourages us to pursue our political careers.
