NICKEL BELT / GREATER SUDBURY– Following his participation at two town hall meetings that took place this week in Kitchener Centre and Cambridge, respectively, Marc Serré, Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt, issued the following statement:
“Ever since I submitted a motion to the House of Commons calling on the federal government to take action to develop and implement a National Seniors Strategy back in December 2016, I have been overwhelmed by the support this initiative has received from Canadians across the country, from doctors and nurses, to family caregivers, and most importantly, seniors themselves” began Serré.
Since then, I have been meeting with seniors and caregivers in my home riding of Nickel Belt/Greater Sudbury to ask them directly what needs to be addressed in Canada’s first-ever National Seniors Strategy. I am extremely grateful to have other Members of Parliament invite me to their communities to share some of the knowledge and insights I have gained on issues related to Canadian seniors and healthy aging over the past year,” continued Serré.
“I would like to thank my colleagues, MP Raj Saini (Kitchener Centre) and MP Bryan May (Cambridge) for welcoming me in their beautiful communities to participate as a guest speaker at their town halls to discuss issues, challenges, and opportunities related to seniors care and healthy aging. Their dedication to their communities is evident in how many residents speak so positively about them, and I would like to thank both MPs Saini and May for their hard work in making these meetings so successful. Most importantly, I would like to thank the many residents of Kitchener and Cambridge who came out to participate in these important and timely community meetings” concluded Serré.
“I was pleased to have the opportunity to hear from seniors, those who work with seniors and those interested in seniors’ issues at yesterday’s roundtable discussion with my colleague Marc Serré. Coming together to share diverse perspectives at community engagements like these place us in a better position to move forward towards a National Seniors’ Strategy.”
–Raj Saini, Member of Parliament, Kitchener Centre
“Marc’s leadership on seniors issues has been helpful in raising the most important concerns for
this growing demographic in Ottawa and across the country. It was a pleasure to have him and
his expertise at our consultation in Cambridge.”
