Braemore Home's incoming CEO

Mildred Colbourne

Braemore Home in Sydney River has a new CEO.

The Cape Breton District Health Authority announced today that Mildred Colbourne will take on the job, starting on February 27th.

Last fall, problems at the home for people with intellectual disabilities including allegations of abuse led the provincial government to step in.

The Department of Communities Services stripped control of the facility from the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

The Cape Breton District Health Authority was put in charge and an interim CEO was appointed.

The province also launched a review of the Home's operations.

For more, Braemore Home's incoming CEO, Mildred Colbourne joins me now.
