Tories need to listen to seniors May 31, 2010

In 2003, the daily nursing home rate was between $123 and $145 a day. Mr. Alward seems to forget that despite our pleas to reduce the fees, his government instead increased them 5 per cent each year. 
The coalition for Seniors and Nursing Homes Residents Rights, formed in 2004, works tirelessly to protect seniors.  Mr. Alward would be wise to listen to them carefully and endeavour to overcome the terrible way his party is perceived to have treated seniors in the past.  And don't forget--the Baby Boomers are watching!
