Members of the Mission Health Care Auxiliary Society were standing outside Mission Memorial Hospital, holding signs of support, on Friday afternoon. The members were shooting a short video, thanking local health care workers for their dedication and helpfulness this past year.
Alyce Campbell, who is in charge of publicity for the Mission Health Care Auxiliary Society, said the short video is part of a larger project.
She explained that other hospitals, that have health care auxiliaries, in Fraser Health are also creating videos. The individual projects will be edited together to create a larger video.
While it has yet to be revealed where the video will be shown, Campbell suspects it could run, on a loop, on the TV screens in local hospitals as well as the websites of all the groups involved.
One thing she does know is the timing of the video couldn’t be better.
“After yesterday, having all of those people (anti-vaccine passport protesters) on the road, I thought how timely… That was just an absolute shock seeing those people out there and I had a hard time getting through the driveway to get down here,” she said.
After the video shoot, the members took their signs of support and hung them in various, safe locations of the hospital.
