Laval legislators round-up
By Robert Frank
Vimont’s representative in Quebec City rose to speak in the provincial parliament, March 12.
Jean Rousselle elegized Serge Bélisle, 54, who succumbed to a brain tumor, March 10.
“Serge was a happy man who liked to bring happiness to those who surrounded him. He was a natural leader, a visionary whom we shall miss deeply.”
Proulx: Women’s Day
Sainte Rose’s representative preceded Rousselle’s remembrance with a call to recognize the progress Quebec women have attained.
“We can now work successfully in all occupations, all professions including—as of quite recently—the post of premier. The glass ceiling has been smashed as never before, and the great contribution of women to their cities, their regions and their countries is now unquestioned.”
Charbonneau: Intellectually Handicapped
“This week you will be receiving a calendar, Mr. Speaker,” Charbonneau added. “Each month is the result of a drawing contest for members of the federation. This year, 672 drawings were submitted from throughout Quebec. The theme this year was: People first: Gathered together and united for our rights.”
Proulx: Newborns and parents’ needs
Proulx rose again in the assembly the following day, March 13, to shine light on a Laval service for expectant and new parents.
“They are practical visionaries, organized with a commitment to society,” she commented. “To all of them, I say bravo.”
