Mr. Marcel R. TVemblay (Quebec-Est):
Madam Speaker, 18 years ago, the Conseil des monuments et sites historiques du Quebec was founded and over the years the council has developed and has earned the respect of the public and professionals alike.
For the first time in many years, the council's finances are in excellent shape. It has paid off all its debts and even has a substantial surplus. The future plans of the board of directors will include investing in partnerships with agencies that will help the council to grow and to fulfil its mandate, which is to protect our heritage.
These partnerships will include, for instance, the Centre d'interpretation de la ville de Quebec, Villa Bagatelle, Parks Canada, the Department of Culture and Les Amis de la vallee du Saint-Laurent, Laval University, the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington and the Canadian Heritage of Quebec Foundation, as well as members of the private sector who remain one of the pillars of the council's success.
June 9, 1993
On this 18th anniversary I want to thank the board of directors, especially Chairperson France Gagnon-Pratte, and I hope they are all looking forward to the coming year.
