Mr. Pierre Poilievre (Nepean—Carleton, CPC):

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to report to the House that the Osgoode Carleton Snowmobile Club is officially the best in Canada. The club has almost 700 members, 200 volunteers, 20 different activities, 300 kilometres worth of land, and 175 generous property owners who donate their land for snowmobile use.

I was please to work with Councillor, Doug Thompson, to help deliver a multi-use pathway that has helped to invigorate the local snowmobile community.

As a result of all these achievements, the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations has declared the Osgoode club to be the best in Canada. Club president, George Darouze, deserves special praise for winning best snowmobile volunteer in Ontario. He is a great leader, who makes Osgoode proud.

Organizations like this in the community help to life the quality of life, unify local citizens and make Osgoode on of the “funnest” and friendliest places to live in all of Canada.
