Press play to watch Jacquie’s acceptance speech

Disclaimer: unfortunately the lady who introduced me, mixed a few things up. I think she was nervous too. I sit on the board of the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa and Bruce House, I volunteer with the Red Cross and Youville Centre. The other organizations mentioned are or were recipients of the Giving Tree branches.
