NDP no longer champions for seniors

By Letter to the Editor on December 29, 2017.

The NDP has been hijacked by special interest groups. They have taken away the non-repayable grants for seniors to repair and stay in their homes, regardless of their income.

Yet, you see and hear all the media reports about non-repayable grants to certain projects and friends to their liking.

No different than the previous two Alberta governments, Social Credit and the PCs, had done.

As an 84-year-old voter, financial supporter and taxpayer all my life, now that I could use a little help, they are telling me to go away.

Is there any help out there for seniors and other underpaid citizens in similar situations?

Let’s get together and get some changes made regardless of what political party is in power.
