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.
