The following is all in the opinion of the author:
A day after the April borough council meeting Alvaro Farinacci told me that I spoke "eloquently" at the meeting.
Mr. Farinacci was going to bring up before the fellow members of his board of the Lasalle General Hospital, the most successful form of fundraising, at the meeting the following day.
When I saw Alvaro Farinacci next to Montreal Hotel de Ville a week or so later, and I asked; "What happened?" He replied; "I can't talk." That was the last that I heard from him.
At the borough meeting, as I spoke, I heard the president of the Lasalle Hospital Foundation (Andre Langelier) say "No" as I was asking a question of Manon Barbe concerning the same matter.
Unfortunately, I have a feeling that in Lasalle,
politics are taking precedent over doing what is best for the Lasalle Hospital Foundation.
The idea that I gave to Alvaro Farinacci has raised over $1 billion for a single charity! As charitable giving in QC is under 50% of what it is on a per capita basis than Canada's poorer provinces, the Lasalle General Hospital Foundation and the members of its board should be looking to raise funds for the hospitals in an efficient manner and not playing politics with people's lives.
