Chungsen Leung, Member for Willowdale (CPC): Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Today is the last day of the year of the snake in the lunar calendar. Tomorrow we welcome the year of the horse. The Lunar New Year has become one of the most widely celebrated holidays in Canada as millions of Canadians including those of Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean heritage gather with family and friends to ring in the new year this evening. Many communities will put on events featuring lion and dragon dances, giving out red envelopes of lucky money and enjoy multi-course meals. I encourage all Canadians to participate in these festivities ensuring the diversity of our multicultural communities. According to the Chinese zodiac, each one of the twelve years is dedicated to a specific animal and this year, it is the year of the horse. People born the year of the horse are said to be energetic, active, hard-working and elegant. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the Government, I wish all Canadians a happy, healthy and prosperous year of the horse.
