More than 300 people attended last Wednesday’s public meeting at Mount Allison University’s Convocation Hall to discuss plans to fight cuts to medical services at Sackville Memorial Hospital.
Many people seemed eager to join in the discussion that followed presentations by Memramcook-Tantramar MLA Megan Mitton, Sackville Mayor John Higham and Fort Folly Chief Rebecca Knockwood.
Since there wasn’t room in my Warktimes report on the meeting to write about many of the interesting and insightful comments, I’ve edited my recording of the meeting to include highlights from the discussion. To listen just click on the play button on the media link below.
Aside from Mitton, Higham and Knockwood, the recording features the voices of such participants as Lori Ann Roness, Peter Edwards, Richard Elliot, Dr. Allison Dysart, Wayne Feindel, Pravin Varma, Joyce O’Neil, Laura Thurston, Elise Vaillancourt, Jan Hirtle, Dr. Ross Thomas and several others.
Laura Reinsborough served as the evening’s moderator.
