‘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.
