Justin Trudeau, Andrew Scheer, Bill Morneau, Filomena Tassi, Lisa Raitt, Thomas Mulcair, Michael Chong, Francesco Sorbara, Alice Wong, Wes Sheridan, Dwight Duncan, Paul Martin Jr…. to name a few.
These are just some of the political movers and shakers who have visited with CARP members and our Advocacy Leaders at the annual CARP Chapter Congresses in Toronto and other CARP-led events.
With 6 out of 10 votes cast coming from the 45-plus demographic in the last federal election, and 4.1 million votes cast by the 65-plus demographic vs. 1.7 million votes cast by 18-24 year olds, Zoomers control the ballot box; and politicians searching for support and looking to better understand the needs of older voters make a visit to CARP HQ a priority at election time.
CARP is a non-partisan, not for profit advocacy group with a mission to improve the lives of Canadians as we age, encouraging all parties and candidates to prioritize issue that are important to our members. In the fall of last year, CARP released our “FACES of Canadian Seniors” campaign of action items asking all parties to commit to specific, measurable improvements in five key areas that matter most to our members. www.carp.ca/faces
