I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

  1. This new hospital will NOT be able to afford staff. I am finding the hospital is using outside agencies.

    Emergency, doesn’t have enough pillows. Staff, are run off their feet.

    They are doing the best they can. It’s time managers hit the floors and work with the team.

    Enough, with sitting behind close doors..

    Managers today need to be hands on and work shift work including weekends.

    They are working with sick people not freight. Walmart has managers 24/7.

  2. I just hope that the new operating rooms don’t sit empty because of the Ontario govts lack of funding for surgeons and specialists and continued cuts to healthcare!!

  3. Just had my third operation at Joe Brant, and both kids born there…I have nothing but praise for the staff of professionals at Joe Brant! Glad to see they’re getting the updated facility that they deserve.

    • Guess no one received incorrect medication that hurt their thyroid and kidneys or C. diff. or caught some other illness never experienced before. I’ve been in Africa and was OK.

  4. Burlington’s got a 7 story massive hospital extension built in less time than a 4 story wood framed Sandman Hotel at Centennial and the QEW 🙂
    Very good job !!
