‘May 2 was a great day for all young Canadians’


Pierre-Luc Dusseault, the youngest person ever elected to the House of Commons, made his first remarks in the House yesterday.

I am here to speak on behalf of all the people in my riding, and also on behalf of all young people across the country. I received congratulatory messages from hundreds of young Canadians who were inspired by my election, and I plan to work tirelessly to show that we young people have a place in public debate and that we can achieve very good results. May 2 was a great day for all young Canadians. Since the election, they can count on a strong voice made up of several members who truly understand their reality. It is finally time to show that every Canadian, regardless of origin, gender, occupation or age, has a place in this important political institution.

  1. It was a nice brief statement!

    Best of luck and hopefully will appreciate and respect the inmense privilege he has received.

  2. Another one off to a good start.

  3. Let’s be real. This guy is an accidental MP.

    • Aren’t they all, seriously?  When he have someone like Tony Clement given powerful positions in the government, I just can’t get judgemental about some of these young,new ones.  I mean, how much worse could they be?
