Rob's Blog Stick Together. Breathe in. Breathe out. We are GOOD! 

Ok, I lied to you. For the first time, I lied to you. I said that I wasn't going to be writing to you for about two weeks over the March Break, but given all that has happened over the last 24 hours, I want to be among you.

Declan is bummed as our planned Raptors game over his March Break is postponed, as is our Pearl Jam concert. With a little luck, his visit with Grandma will be a memorable one and he will still hopefully have his friends over for a play date.

The next little while will be a busy time for all of us – I mean ALL of us. Each of us will get through this time as long as we lean on one another, keep communication lines open, show empathy and understanding, keep the health and safety of everyone in the front of our minds with everything we do, especially with the decisions we may need to make. 

You are all leaders and sometimes leaders are required to follow. We will continue to update with accurate information and will follow the recommendations provided by public health.

As always, take care of yourself, the ones you hold close to your heart and one another, and follow public health guidelines to keep yourselves healthy.


Have a great weekend!
