On Tuesday, Sept. 3, I’ll be holding a special open house for seniors, together with MP Dick Harris, at my new constituency office in Quesnel.
The open house will taking place from 10 a.m. until noon, and my office is located at 644A Front Street.
This is a great chance for our seniors to come out and discuss the issues that are important to them with their representatives from the federal and provincial governments.
I hope many of you will join us!
With people leading longer and healthier lives, seniors are one of the fastest growing demographic groups in our province.
They have needs which may be quite different from other segments of the population, and it’s important that all levels of government provide services that suit their needs.
Whether it’s providing housing assistance, helping seniors live independently in their homes through programs such as Better at Home, or providing a voice for seniors through the appointment of a Seniors’ Advocate, government has an important role to play in meeting the needs of seniors.
The Open House for Seniors on September 3 is a great opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas, as well as a chance to get to know your representatives in government.
MP Harris and I look forward to getting the chance to meet with all our local seniors that day, answering their questions, and talking about the issues that are important to them.
Come on down and join us for the open house — I hope to see you there.
