    What a statement about the force of sm.. and more importantly, the force of our fearless leader (and I’m not talking about former Minister of Health – and current Liberal critic, using #hcsmca as a forum) I’m talking about Ms. #hcsmca herself. Wow indeed, Colleen! F’n eh!

    Having read Ujjal Dosanjh’s PDF, I welcome the opportunity of this tweetup for a reality check. I’m working on editing my points of discussion to 140 characters.

    Colleen: be interesting to see if it warrants longer than 20-minute T1. (I’m prepared to revisit expectations for getting to T3…. the question I put forward ;)

      While I will take credit for having set the stage and initiating #hcsmca, it was the animated community discussion of more than 72 members last week that set the hashtag trending in most cities across Canada. The “force of social media” indeed.

      We’ll see how today’s discussion unfolds. I would dearly like to get to topic 3 as it is especially current after the airing of Dr. Goldman’s show on doctors and social media as well as the fantastic success of #MDchat yesterday. Here’s the transcript and commentary:
