    now at your AWWCA 1 Two of our founders and stalwart directors Loreen Jerome and Janet Woodward are taking well deserved retirements from the board of directors 2 Janet s departure means that our wonderful newsletter will be much reduced and probably will be converted to electronic format 3 In about 10 minutes my friend and colleague Jay Parlar on the board for the past four years will be acclaimed as president Jay grew up and was educated in this area still lives and works here is the proud father of two very young children and is a newly minted PhD in computer engineering at McMaster He brings commitment energy smarts and a contemporary mind to the position 4 At the end of my report at the 2010 AGM I emphasized the need for new persons to join the board Fortunately a number of you listened and I am very pleased to tell you that Paul Faure Pamela Grelecki Ken Moyle and Kevin Russell will become new directors of the AWWCA in a few minutes Each of them brings valuable experience and insight to their new positions Paul originally hails from Seattle and teaches behavioural psychology at McMaster Pamela and her musician husband live in Westdale she works in food services at McMaster and she has an interest in policing Ken has an important IT role at McMaster is a long time resident of Westdale and is a responsible owner of several rental houses Kevin has lived on Traymore for over 25 years was a director of retail placement at the LCBO before retirement and is interested in housing issues A brief caution to Ken Pamela Paul and Kevin I encourage you to attend each board meeting Absence has risk The board has been known to operate much like the governing council of my church If you miss a meeting you may end up chairing a newly created committee If you miss two meetings in a row you do the sermon the next month However Rob Payne my predecessor and I want it clearly understood that this custom does not apply to past presidents of the AWWCA Are you listening Jay As members of the AWWCA we have to embrace these and other changes Please give your new president these four new directors and the returning six directors Shelli Cary Barb Ira Angela and Vinnie your full support Two final observations as departing president They are personal ones which my fellow directors and many of you may or may not share Over 13 years ago this association then a steering committee was formed principally in reaction to the challenges to our near campus community caused by ever increasing undergraduate enrolment and the conversion of owner occupied homes to short term tenancies operated by absentee landlords and real estate agents These challenges continue witness the school board s recommendation to close Prince Philip School a real blow to Ainslie Wood South For the first five or so years of the AWWCA

  • Responses to the LHIN Decision Sept. 29, 2008 | AWWCA
    acknowledged public concern re the lack of consultation by HHS the Board accepted assurance that a list of consultations refuted that concern Again no one asked what changes or discussions had resulted from the so called consultations These consultations were essentially presentations of foregone conclusions which we could accept or not but could not change Ms Emo was asked a few questions some of which were clearly inappropriate for her to attempt to answer on behalf of the HHS but she tried to do so These questions further reinforced my feeling that the Board had not done its homework My greatest shock came however when a Board member stated clearly that he was going to base his opinion and vote on the conversations he had with his golfing buddies So much for sober consideration of issues weighing of outcomes and making decisions based on what is best for the community I was also dismayed to see that at least one Board member seemed to resort to voting according to the Trust me I m a doctor attitude precluding any hard questioning of the plan Thus using a double negative the LHIN approved the Access to Best Care proposal Personally I feel fairly neutral about the closure of the adult ED However I do feel very strongly that the whole process has been grossly flawed and unfair to the public If I do not like products in one store I can go to another If I do not like the service from one company I can go to another But the public has no choice in the provision of health care and yet must pay a great deal for it Hospital administrators are making the choices but the public has no option but to accept These decisions are too far reaching to have such a limited hearing Still unanswered are how the city will afford the extra ambulance and paramedic services needed and what McMaster students will do The recruitment of pediatric emergentologists is highly problematic despite claims by HHS If current HHS emergency physicians are stretched what will it be like when they staff both MUMC and a new Urgent Care Center Where is Family Medicine in all this I make no claim to have all the answers but I believe they should at least be addressed Since HHS did not I had hopes the LHIN Board might do so Like all physicians I have always tried to provide the best care for patients I believe this plan falls far short of that Response from Rob Payne The community engagement process used by Hamilton Health Sciences and accepted by our LHIN s appointed board of directors as sufficient for their decision to approve the HHS Access to Best Care Plan needs a significant overhaul It is recognized that the LHIN structure is relatively new and that LHIN boards will more fully understand their role to represent the community much like corporate boards represent the stakeholders as they gain experience However
