Helping and Mobilizing Seniors – Wednesday February 21, 2018 (New)
With a provincial election coming up in just a few months, a Kingston man wants seniors to rally around his call for better treatment. Donnie Hogan thinks a lot of seniors aren’t getting the support they need from the government. A lot of it has to do with things that aren’t covered by OHIP. He is trying to organize a campaign whereby seniors flex their electoral muscles to force a change. Also, BBC reports on British seniors who are into their second century, and the U.K. government’s new Minister of Loneliness.
