The chair­man of the board

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Lo­cal le­gal light, G. G. (Gabriel Gilles) Aubry, the first hos­pi­tal board chair, was one of the cat­a­lysts be­hind con­struc­tion.

At the ini­tial meet­ing held five years be­fore it was com­pleted, Mr. Aubry sup­ported the un­der­tak­ing, “As long as I’m not sad­dled with another job of or­ga­niz­ing,” he quipped. “Gabe“was sad­dled with a huge task, one he gladly and ably com­pleted. As TheNews re­ported, “Mr. Aubry some­how found time through those years to squeeze in in­nu­mer­able hos­pi­tal meet­ings, to deal with gov­ern­ment red tape and many other prob­lems as they arose. He must have a feel­ing of sat­is­fac­tion, of achieve­ment, now that our hos­pi­tal is a re­al­ity. He prob­a­bly feels he has earned a rest; but then there is a board of gover­nors to be se­lected and it will face prob­lems, too. Some of those prob­lems may be le­gal. Per­haps our new hos­pi­tal will ben­e­fit if it re­tains his ser­vices, at the same fee he has not been charg­ing.”
