Senior living standards and care are common topics heard from candidates during this election, especially in the Parry Sound-Muskoka region. NDP candidate Matt McCarthy says his party would bring more funds directly to the region to target issues like affordable housing.
McCarthy says the NDP also plans to bring in a new pharmacy program that would reduce the cost of medications.
McCarthy will be running against incumbent Conservative Tony Clement, Marxist-Leninist Albert Gray Smith, NDP Matt McCarthy, Green Glen Hodgson, Liberal Trisha Cowie and Canadian Action Gordie Merton. Election day is Monday, October 19th.
