It's Thursday, April 14th.
Like many Canadians I watched the French leaders debate last night.
And tonight I will watch hockey without having to pretend I watched the French leaders debate.
This is The Current.
The Senior Vote - Party Panel
Our federal political leaders have been talking a lot about seniors during this election campaign. This morning, as part of our project Shift on demographic change, we wanted to let seniors talk back. In our last hour of the program, we opened up the phone lines and asked seniors to call in and share their concerns about this election.
But first, each of the three main national parties is promising to make it easier to grow old gracefully and securely in Canada. But the parties have very different ideas about how best to do that. Lois Brown is the Conservative candidate in the riding of Newmarket-Aurora in Ontario. Wayne Marston is the NDP candidate in Hamilton East-Stoney Creek in Ontario. They were in our Toronto studio. Anita Neville is the Liberal candidate in Winnipeg South Centre. She was in Winnipeg.
