Question Period – Journey of Nishiyuu

On Monday, March 25th, 2013 in Question Period

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I was outside as the young people of nishiyuu flooded on to Parliament Hill. A bald eagle circled overhead.

I want to sacrifice my once-a-week question, and rather than be partisan I want to give these young people who have walked all this way, these beautiful Cree and first nations youth, something unique. Let us just give them a huge round of applause so they know that when they go back home to their families, all of us honoured them, saluted them and found them to be an inspiration.

Some hon. members: Hear, hear!

Hon. Bernard Valcourt: Mr. Speaker, as I indicated earlier, we will do better than just applaud them. We will meet with them and listen to them.
