Nelson stands by new hospital prez

Ron Nelson calls it pure politics. Nelson headed the committee that chose New Brunswick's Andree Robichaud as the new president of the Health Sciences Centre. Robichaud's departure has caused a stir in that province, with some politicians saying she was forced out of her job as CEO of a health network. Nelson says Robichaud has what it takes for the job adding she knows what it takes to make tough but necessary decisions. He says that Robichaud is being accused of things that simply aren't true and doesn't believe it will bring a distraction to her job here.
