Sacred Moment
Ms. Ramona Coey shared part of a TED Talk video delivered by Chris Cummins, a gifted public speaker who has had a positive impact on Coey’s life. In the video, Cummins speaks to the ripple effects of a small positive act that has the power to gain momentum and touch many lives. Cummins said that a negative act propagates the same way and he challenged the audience to consider that acts of kindness help others to believe in themselves.   

Quality & Patient Safety Committee of the Whole
Ms. Jolene Dayholos provided a Disaster Management, Quality, Patient Safety & Risk update on the outcomes and next steps following the winter storm that struck southern Manitoba in October 2019.
