Ontario Hansard - May 5th 2015 

Mrs. Marie-France Lalonde: On the weekend, I attended several community events.

Vendredi soir, j’avais le plaisir de féliciter la chorale Les jeunes de coeur du Centre Séraphin-Marion d’Orléans et ses 55 choristes retraités et semi-retraités pour le spectacle et leur implication dans la communauté.

Saturday afternoon, a councillor from Cumberland ward, Stephen Blais, hosted his annual ladies’ tea, and I was happy to meet many members of our community.

Samedi soir fut la première édition de la Soirée Saphir, où six femmes francophones ont été reconnues pour leur apport au sein de secteurs comme le sport, l’environnement, la politique, l’éducation et les affaires.


Sunday morning, I was pleased to join my colleague John Fraser at the annual Hike for Hospice, in Ottawa, at the May Court Hospice. They were raising awareness about the importance of quality end-of-life care for our aging and supporting their families through the journey.

After that, my staff, family and I spent the afternoon bowling in honour of James Osborne, who took his own life at the age of 18. His family and friends organized this third annual event to raise awareness about youth mental health and funds for a non-profit called Partners for Mental Health. It was a truly inspiring event and a reminder to support our friends who may be struggling.

It was a wonderful weekend in Orléans, Mr. Speaker.

Keep in Mind...
