Shirley McLoughlin, federal Liberal seniors commissioner for Vancouver Island North, is inviting seniors to a town hall to have their say on the issues that affect a balanced lifestyle.
McLoughlin, a past Comox councillor, provincial and federal Liberal candidate, and the first female leader of any provincial Liberal party in Canada, is bringing her vast knowledge of how politics works and how to get things done at all levels of government.
She is eager to hear directly from seniors what the current issues are that affect them the most.
“All across Canada,” she says,” seniors are mobilizing to help develop policy for government. Don’t you think you are the real expert on your life style and what affects it?”
The federal Liberal Party is sponsoring the town hall and will be facilitated by local riding policy chair Rod Bell-Irving, who comments, “We value your views and together we can develop policy that will be presented to all levels of government for action.” Ideas will be recorded and feedback is guaranteed.
The town hall will be held at the Little Red Church, 2182 Comox Avenue (across from St. Josephs’ Hospital) on Nov. 20 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. and is open to all seniors. Admission is free and tea will be served.
Bring your concerns and possible solutions. The more voices heard the stronger the message.
— Liberal Party of Canada
