Mr. Denis Paradis (Brome-Missisquoi, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, Robert Bourassa was both a proud Quebecer and a proud Canadian.
Throughout his life, he strove to find ways to express this dual commitment that most Quebecers share with him.
Despite the defeats and constitutional failures he experienced, he never stopped believing that Quebecers were better off within the Canadian federation.
One day after his death, we join with all the people of Canada in expressing our gratitude and admiration for his outstanding contribution to the development of Quebec and Canada.
