Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie: pedaling for the Sainte-Famille school

The funds raised will be used to support various projects related to physical activity such as golf, cross-country skiing, cycling and “keeping connected to move,” mentions Charles Raîche, director of Sainte-Famille school.

“For us it’s really important and appreciated. This allows us to go further with activities for students,” he adds.

More than thirty young people from Sainte-Famille school were present at the press briefing Monday morning.

“Young people are often in front of screens […] and with conferences like that, and seeing important people like Mr. Bonnardel get involved, it can give a little spark in some students to encourage them to move more,” underlines Mr. Raîche.

Involvement

This is François Bonnardel’s 11th participation in the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie and the second time that he has sponsored the Sainte-Famille school.

“I have sponsored quite a few schools in the Granby area so it is normal that after 11 years I come back a second time to certain schools and the goal is to sponsor schools that have special needs,” specifies Mr. Bonnardel.

In total, the amount raised for schools in the region amounts to more than $101,000.

“It is important to remember that 100% of donations will go to Sainte-Famille school. The registration fee has already been paid by the National Assembly. So all the money raised on the Grand Défi website goes directly to the school!”

For the occasion, two bicycles will be donated for the Sainte-Famille school, a sponsorship of Canadian Tire in Granby.

“We will assess which students need it most and we will draw lots among those,” says Mr. Raîche.

Parliamentary work

The end of parliamentary work is approaching, on June 7. Mr. Bonnardel intends to table a bill on the Mental Disorders Review Commission following the tragic death of Sergeant Maureen Breau in 2023.

“We will table the project, if the opposition wishes to adopt it quickly, we will always be open. Everything is possible in the National Assembly,” says Mr. Bonnardel.

The CAQ General Council took place this weekend in Saint-Hyacinthe, and the next issues will revolve around social networks and screen time among young people.

According to François Bonnardel, it is still too early to talk about the next elections, but he maintains that the question he is always asked… is he going to run again in the next elections?

“I’m always asked the question and I’m going to ask myself three months or six months before the next election. Now, it’s too early but I always make the same reflection election after election, but I didn’t ask myself the question there,” he said in conclusion.
