Off camera: It’s the lights.

Mr. Bastien: Alright, I’m Len Bastien, ADM(IM), and I’m going to do 60 Seconds today, on this really cool, new tablet. Which, are the same tablets we’re going to take to [Carling] Campus, so, let’s see how this works.

1. ‘Pokémon Go’, yes or no?


2. In your opinion, what is the coolest IT related product or program available at Defence?

Clearly this new tablet.

3. Next… unsung heroes of my organization??

Louise, you’re just fishin’.

Off camera: Laughter.

Mr. Bastien: I could just go on.

4. Sens or Leafs?

I don’t want to answer that.

5. As a Defence champion for persons with disabilities, what is your one wish for that community?

Oh, this is serious. Inclusiveness. They’ve all got to feel like they’re part of the team right from the beginning.

Go on a family vacation.

Answering questions on a tablet.

Mr. Bastien: Aw, am I done already? I really wanted to beat Mark because… anyway.
