I am supporting Gail for CMA president.She is thoughtful,articulate,pragmatic and a thoroughly nice person! She has a positive vision for health care in Canada which has been moulded and tempered by decades on the front lines of health care. She also has the ability to move that vision towards positive action, having a proven track record of accomplishment in the sometimes arcane world of health politics.

I encourage you all to vote for Gail!
