Minister for seniors taken to task

I’d like to respond to Seniors Minister Sultan and his address in Williams Lake.

His dissing of my comments about the value and sacrifices seniors have made in this province was, unfortunately, typical of the Liberal government.

After having been elected three times, he has the enjoyment of a substantial pension and great health care, all paid for by the taxpayers, including the seniors of course.

If anyone is living in a “dream world” surely it is him.

We are still waiting on opening the extra beds in 100 Mile House and the minister has no knowledge or funding for what we need in the Williams Lake hospital.

No reduction in prescription drug costs because his government caved in to the drug companies wanting exemptions.

He also mentions that there are many communities that are not “age” friendly, meaning seniors. He may not agree but I think seniors are a great asset to any community.

Under the current minister, B.C. may not be a great place to be a senior.
