Thank you everyone.
Today has been an exceptional day in the midst of exceptional times. A few weeks ago, the Deputy Speaker, the hon. member for Simcoe North and the Assistant Deputy Speaker, the hon. member for Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing, presided over the chamber as a small group of members gathered to pass emergency legislation that would help Canadians cope with some of the devastating effects of the global pandemic that has hit this country.
Today I have had the privilege of being here with you, hon. members and employees. I want to thank you, personally and on behalf of our parliamentary colleagues, for being here and for your efforts to serve Canadians.
We were able to carry out our work today because of the support of all these essential employees of the House administration, the Library of Parliament and the Parliamentary Protective Service. We are grateful for your help under these challenging circumstances.
On behalf of my colleagues, I would also like to express my gratitude to health care workers and everyone who works to keep our essential structures running smoothly.
Hon. colleagues, keep safe, keep well, and we will get through this together.
I want to wish all of you a happy Easter and a happy Passover. Have a great weekend.
Thank you all very much.
Accordingly, the House stands adjourned until Monday, April 20, 2020, at 11 a.m., pursuant to Standing Orders 28(2) and 24(1).
(The House adjourned at 6:04 p.m.)
