The Municipality of La Motte salutes Cardinal Marc Ouellet
LA MOTTE, QC, March 13, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Mayor of the municipality of La Motte, René Martineau, wishes to congratulate Cardinal Marc Ouellet even though the College of Cardinals has elected another Cardinal as head of the Catholic Church. "We are extremely proud that a native of La Motte has stirred as much enthusiasm. Cardinal Ouellet certainly put our municipality on the map."
For the small community of about 450 people, the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity, with dozens of journalists visiting the area to learn a little more about the man who has made headlines worldwide. "We are fully aware of the media exposure this uncommon situation has given to this part of the country. We thank the media representatives we have had the opportunity to meet for their courtesy," says Martineau.
In a few days, our elected officials, municipal authorities and the people of La Motte will return to their normal life. "We will be proud to salute Mgr Ouellet on his next visit to his native village, where he can always find peace and rest," concludes the Mayor of La Motte.
