The Deputy Speaker
Colleagues, on behalf of this House, I thank the Commissioner, the Honourable Margaret M. Thom, for being here today. It is always a pleasure to have her in the Chamber.
Thank you also to the interpreters who have worked so hard throughout this sitting. We honour our official languages by using them. The interpreters make this possible for us. Thank you.
My thanks to each of you. Your hard work and dedication over the past few weeks has accomplished a great deal, and I am proud of the work that has been done.
Colleagues, next Wednesday is Remembrance Day. We have observed Remembrance Day for more than a hundred years. As Canadians, we are fortunate to live in such a prosperous and beautiful country during times of peace. For this, we must be grateful. Members, please join me in thanking our veterans and serving members of our armed forces.
This House will not sit again until the new year, but we will remain busy. Our days will be filled with the ongoing business of committees and government, and serving our constituents. Remember to make time for those closest to us, our friends and family, those we rely on for support and assistance. These are the people who make it possible for us to do our important work. Take the time to tell them how much you appreciate all they do.
As we approach the holiday season, we must recognize it will be different this year. We may not be able to travel to visit family and friends or host the same feasts and get-togethers. Members, the holidays will be challenging this year, but as Northerners, we can and will celebrate the season safely. Take time to check in on those in your communities who may be having a difficult time. Together, we are stronger. As we celebrate the holidays, please remember to do so safely. Follow the public health orders. Travel safely on our roads and on the land.
I would like to take this time to thank all colleagues here today. Mr. Clerk, orders of the day.
