Invite to All Candidates Town Hall on Seniors Care

NationBuilder r1

Dear Paov --

It's hard to believe we are halfway through this 2021 federal election campaigning period already! Election day on September 20 is not that far away. We have been committed to making seniors care and specifically long-term care a national election issue.

With that in mind, we are inviting you to a virtual All Candidates Meeting with federal candidates from Vancouver-Granville and Vancouver-South on September 13 at 7pm. The focus will be on issues that are important to seniors and how the federal government can improve the lives of seniors. Register for the Zoom meeting using the button below.

The All Candidates Meeting will be a chance for you to hear candidates' positions on seniors issues but also their parties' seniors-related plans. Seniors from various organizations will be asking candidates questions.

The BCHC is thankful to be co-hosting the... meeting with our friends at the Jewish Seniors Alliance, Marpole Oakridge Family Place, South Vancouver Seniors Network, South Granville Seniors Centre, and COSCO BC.

For those of you in ridings outside of Vancouver-Granville and Vancouver-South, we have not forgotten you! We compiled a "Ask Your Candidates" guide for the 2021 Election focusing on key health care issues including seniors care. You can read the guide HERE.

The guide contains background information and questions to ask candidates. You can get candidates on the record by demanding action in the following areas:

  • Increase health funding to provinces
  • Remove profit from health care
  • Improve seniors care including national standards for long-term care
  • Expand public mental health services
  • Implement national Pharmacare
  • Eliminate racism in health care

Together, we can make investment into our public health care system a priority for this federal election!

In solidarity,
