THUMBS UP - to the Walmart employee “first aid response team” on the morning of Monday, February 26. The employees who responded to an emergency in the store, responded quickly with confidence and knowledge. They showed great compassion and exuded amazing calmness and reassurance to a fellow member of our Port Perry community during what I’m sure was a very fearful event. Their teamwork and compassion must be commended. THUMBS DOWN - to everyone that drives around in poor visibility (fog, rain, snow) with no headlights.
