"We've got the bicycle and the Presto card, we've got the staircase, we've got the coffee cup, we've got the watering can, and we've got the library card. Love that @tobi_nussbaum picked these objects as core to good community planning.

Love this quote from @JustinTrudeau: “Canadians understanding that being back on the world stage, being positively engaged, being confident about our investments... in the economy of the future, are things to be proud of here in Canada. No, we will not apologize for swaggering."

What's a writ, you ask? THIS is a writ. It's basically a note that goes out to each returning officer in all 124 ridings saying the election is on. 2 copies are made for each riding: 1 goes to the riding, the other into storage. #Election2018#onpoli@ElectionsON

It's a record-breaking year! Our community raised over $1M at the 2018 #CNcycle. That's $1,032,490 for oncology care and research and #CHEO and we couldn't be more proud of our sponsors, participants and volunteers. Thank you.
Think you can't do value-based procurement in Ontario? Think again! We have worked with procurement specialists and the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services to myth-bust three methods of procurement. Check it out! #OCHIShealth.gov.on.ca/en/pro/program…
Remarkably, this is fourth time this 42nd Parliament has had the sad task of eulogizing one of its members. This House has had to bid farewell Gord Brown, Arnold Chan, Mauril Belanger, and Jim Hillyer.

Had the best weekend at @HHOttawa 's Hackathon hosted by @Shopify! It was an amazing experience getting to work on a project to improve healthcare in such a short amount of time. Hope ShareMD continues to be developed and thank you for the awards! #HHOttawa#HIP613#HackingHealth
Congratulations #HIP613 participants, volunteers and partners. You have shown yet again that #Ottawa and its leading institutions are ready to put in the work, resources and commitments needed to innovate. This is just the beginning. Thank you!
A note I saved from my GT Dr. Mack for 20 YEARS (he teased that with my experience I would make a better doctor).
Beautiful reminder of the impact a caring CHEO team can make to a sick kid for tonight’s #HIP613@HHOttawa
Incredible and inspiring presentation by @GrandmaKim at #HIP613 talking about "living at CHEO for 16 and half years." Reminding innovators to think about families and patients over the weekend. "We made it here today."
Happy to be supporting the important work that will be done over the next three days. Can’t wait to see what the teams come up with - last year was mind blowing so no pressure #hip613 participants ;) #ottawa
