Here are some of the announcements from the P.E.I. election campaign Monday.

Progressive Conservative Leader Dennis King and Green Leader Peter Bevan-Baker both started the day at the Matthew Murphy Memorial Fishermen's Breakfast in Kingston.

King spent the remainder of the day campaigning in his home district, Brackley-Hunter River.

Bevan-Baker headed west to spend the morning campaigning with candidates in Summerside. In the afternoon he was joined by national Green Party Leader Elizabeth May and New Brunswick MLAs David Coon and Megan Mitton to campaign in District 24, Evangeline-Miscouche. The party then held a rally at the College of Piping in Summerside in the evening.

The Liberals made an announcement on their seniors policy in Cornwall at 9:30 a.m.

The proposal included an additional $750,000 per year in home repairs and renovations for seniors, and a promise to explore new technology to make seniors' homes safer.

The Liberals also promised to hire new home care nurses to allow coverage seven days a week and reduce costs for access to generic medications by half.

Leader Wade MacLauchlan then campaigned in districts 14, 15 and 16.

NDP Leader Joe Byrne spent the day campaigning in his own district, Charlottetown-Victoria Park.
