Rocky Simpson Hay River South

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would also like to recognize Beatrice Lepine. She's Member Simpson next to me's constituent, but she helped me out in my campaign and supported me and always supports me. She does lots for the community, and I would like to thank her for that.

I would also like to recognize Ms. Joyce Stewart, as well, from Hay River. I think she's still from Hay River. Anyways, her dad, Mr. Don Stewart was a Speaker here as well in this House many years ago and a well-respected politician, as well.

One other person I would like to recognize is Mr. Jim Thom, as well. He's got an important job. He drives the Commissioner around, so we have to make sure that he is looked after, as well. Thank you.
