Wildrose launches new survey on seniors at Alberta's Voice
EDMONTON, AB (November 1, 2013): Today, the Wildrose Official Opposition is launching a new survey on Alberta’s Voice (http://wildro.se/abvoice ) to directly listen to the views of Albertans on seniors issues from across the province.
The new survey is the second survey launched by the Wildrose and is an innovative new approach to get feedback on the important issues affecting seniors. It will also help provide recommendations to the government to improve the quality of life for all seniors in Alberta. “We have seen this out of touch PC government make decisions that directly impact our seniors without bothering to ask them or their families for input,” Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith said. “We believe seniors, their families and everyday Albertans deserve to have their voice heard instead of just the special interests of the government.” The first Alberta’s Voice survey on the website asked questions about how Albertans feel about the financial direction of the province. Wildrose Seniors Critic Kerry Towle said the survey results will directly help her understand the PC policies that are most hurting seniors, such as the divorce by nursing home policy or the centralization of home care services. “We know the seniors, who built our province, deserve so much better from their government than what they are getting today,” Towle said. “They deserve a government that cares about the issues that matter most to them and I am confident that Albertans agree. I look forward to hearing the feedback.”
