“Hello,my name is Debbie Cameron & I am an RN at Cornwall Community Hospital.I am writing to you today to tell you how disappointed I am that your president Mr.Benoit Mercier asked your 200 members to vote for or against CCH hiring policy..First of all I would like to say I believe it is inappropriate for such a vote to have even occurred.What did he mean to accomplish doing this,perhaps increasing the tensions between French & English..Secondly,to have such a vote using incorrect information to sway the teachers vote is highly unethical & I believe he should publicly apologize & set the record straight;2 English Hospitals merged in Cornwall-1 public(Cornwall General) & 1 Catholic(Hotel Dieu),not 1 English & 1 French..I suggest in the future Mr.Mercier do his homework & research his information appropriately. I Graduated from St.Lawrence College in 1994 with Honors with a Registered Nurse Diploma & I trained at both Hospitals.Being I am AnglophoneI can assure you both Hospitals have ALWAYS functioned in 100% English.Thank-you for your prompt attention to this matter.”
Thank you for voicing your concerns. As a French-language labour organization representing 10 000 members in Ontario, the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens believes it is of the utmost importance for the Francophone population to have access to French-language health services. That is why AEFO supports the current hiring policy of the Cornwall Community Hospital.

There seems to be a common theme of ignoring the question,remember 2 + 2 = blue & Mrs Periad….
