BOYS & GIRLS CLUB: ACTS OF KINDNESS, FLOWER BOMBING - THANKS

SUSAN LEBLANC: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the youth at the Dartmouth North Boys and Girls Club who, during the week of Valentine's Day, brought joy, smiles, and laughter to total strangers at the Alderney Ferry Terminal by flowerbombing them.

In February, the club was gifted a huge quantity of cut flowers by Bloomex Canada, and with the help of volunteers from RBC, the youth and staff individually wrapped over 500 roses and tulips and then hit the ferry terminal to spread some love. Standing with buckets of flowers as people got on and off the ferry, the group simply handed them out to people in an effort to brighten their day and put a smile on their face.

In a world where so many can be suspicious of strangers, it is simply wonderful to know that random acts of kindness can still bring people together in love and community. I ask the members of this House to join me in thanking the youth and staff of the Dartmouth North Boys and Girls Club for their generous act toward their Dartmouth neighbours.

THE SPEAKER « » : The honourable member for Lunenburg West.
