Media Advisory-Seniors to Visit MPP Aileen Carroll Re: Retirement Homes

BARRIE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 18, 2009) - SEIU Local 1 and a group of retirees will hold a rally outside the office of MPP Aileen Carroll, Minister Responsible for Seniors, on Thursday, March 19th to call attention to the lack of regulation in retirement homes.

In 2007 the provincial government conducted a province wide survey on the issue of regulating retirement homes yet no action has been taken. SEIU retirees will deliver petitions with hundreds of signatures and personal letters demanding the provincial government regulate retirement homes now. Our seniors are at risk everyday when employers are not held accountable.

Date: Thursday, March 19th

Time: 1:00 pm

Location: Constituency Office of MPP Aileen Carroll
Suite 306- 128 Wellington Street West
Barrie, ON.
