DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS THURSDAY MAY 11, 2006 Fifty-ninth General Assembly of Nova Scotia Second Session 2:00 P.M. Speaker: Honourable Cecil Clarke --- RESOLUTION NO. 409 By: Mr. David Wilson (Glace Bay)
I hereby give notice that on a future day I shall move the adoption of the following resolution:
Whereas Miss Aselin Debison, an artist, musician and resident of the Town of Glace Bay, has travelled extensively throughout Nova Scotia, Canada, U.S., as well as China, promoting our local talent and culture; and
Whereas Miss Aselin Debison has been singing the National Anthem for both Canada and the U.S. during the Vince Ryan Hockey Tournament, a yearly event in the Town of Glace Bay since she was seven years old; and
Whereas Miss Aselin Debison is an excellent representative of talent and artistry of the Glace Bay, Cape Breton Area on both a national and international scale. She is a fine example of an artist who takes pride in giving back to her community by participating in local events and fund raisers;
Therefore be it resolved that members of the House of Assembly congratulate Miss Aselin Debison, a fine representative of the youth in the Town of Glace Bay, for her sense of community spirit.
I love the initiative. That is really leading with the community. Trying to get my town accept the acievemernts of youth at all let alone praise and encourage them is something of an uphill struggle. Here, I'm afraid, we have too many po-faced miseries only too keen to find all that is wrong with our youth. Peter
Her eyes were the blue of cornflowers that dance amongst ripening wheat, Her hair the colour of golden sands bleached by summer's heat.
Thanks Joe & Peter, I just can't imagine the same sort of commendation coming from our State Government's sessions here in Australia. That was extremely moving to read. Wonderful! Graemek
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
