Two Boomer Women & The Fine Art of Conversation

TBW Editorial Rant: Agnes on the Up-Coming Federal Election

September 1, 2021

Twenty-two months into a 4-year mandate Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called a federal election.

I this episode, Agnes reviews the three main party platforms (for lack of a better word...) as they pertain to seniors' issues.  Boomers are either seniors or soon-to-be and Grey Ruckus is all about seniors so Agnes isolated those issues... yes, we are well aware there are a myriad of issues in any election, but this episode focuses on seniors.
