Mr. Speaker, in an era of climate change, and given the importance of taking measures for the health of our planet, I want to highlight a remarkable initiative launched by students at the École polyvalente Saint-Jérôme in my riding.
A dozen students took it upon themselves to create a mini sorting centre in their cafeteria in order to reduce waste and its impact on the environment. This project, called “Cafétéria verte”, is supported by the Fondation Monique Fitz-Back and backed by many stakeholders in my community, including the Rivière-du-Nord RCM, the Carrefour Jeunesse-emploi Rivière-du-Nord and the Tricentris sorting centre.
I want to commend this initiative and the students behind this environmentally responsible project.
Way to go, Rosalie, Manuel, Victorianne and Émylie.
On behalf of myself and my Bloc Québécois colleagues, I can assure them of our unwavering support in the fight against climate change.
