Tories need to respect seniors: advocate - Published Thursday September 30th, 2010


Cecile Cassista worried that new gov't will revert back to system of seizing assets to pay for nursing homes

 Seniors' advocate Cecile Cassista vows to hold David Alward to his word on issues like nursing home care, property tax assessments and the need for better services for New Brunswick's aging population. 
She also said there should be zero tolerance for criminals and fraud artists who prey on seniors and better laws to make sure pensions are protected. Improved training and staffing of nursing homes is also very important to the coalition.
