ACT Foundation – CPR training for all secondary schools in B.C.

June 08, 2010

Speech delivered by Hugh O'Neill
President and CEO, Sanofi-aventis Canada
Richmond, B.C.


It’s a pleasure to be here this morning for such an exciting announcement. To bring the ACT Foundation program to all public secondary schools across B.C. is no small achievement!

On behalf of sanofi-aventis, let me say how proud we are to be a part of it. We have been partnering with ACT for more than 20 years now. In fact, we are a founding partner. To reach this milestone shows that our faith in each other over these two decades is truly well founded.

As corporate health partners of the ACT Foundation, we have a definite role to play. We help promote our shared mission, we provide funding, some of us serve on the ACT Board of Directors.

All that is well and good, but I want to emphasize today that this wonderful program would have no legs – no pulse – if it wasn’t for the dedicated teachers who actually deliver the ACT program in our schools. Who crouch down beside our kids, put their hands on a mannequin and show them how to save someone’s life.

I’m sure that every one of us remembers one or two special teachers who passed on life lessons that guided us for years to come. Here is one more opportunity for gifted and engaged teachers to make a difference in their students’ lives, and to benefit society overall.

Today, let me thank all the teachers who give their time to this valuable cause. I also thank the paramedics, who enable you to enlarge your role in this way. And I would like to thank the Government of B.C., who through British Columbia Ambulance Services, is also a major partner in this program. Our communities are safer, and our young people more empowered, because of you.
