In your latest copy of The Rapport you will find suggested questions for you to ask your candidates when they come to your door to ask for your vote.

Don’t be shy ask about the issues you care about.

Here are the issues of concern submitted by RTOERO national:

1) National Pharmacare

2) Environment isn’t an election issue -it’s about our survival.

3) Canadians deserve a dignified and financially secure retirement.

Here are the questions I suggest asking the candidates in your riding:

1) How will your government improve community based home care to prevent my parents or grandparents from having to enter a Long Term Care facility, so they can live at home with supports in place for as long as possible?

2) Building new highways, using farmland, is not a solution to the fundamental problem of individuals using cars to commute to work. What creative mass transit solutions and incentives will your government use to protect our green spaces and commit to reducing our carbon use. ( It cost taxpayers $30 million to take the federal government to court to try to dispute the carbon tax and the Ford government lost that case)

3) What measures will your government take to prevent the lack of emergency health care preparedness and devastation of the pandemic from recurring during the next wave and future pandemics?
