COVID-19 revealed what advocates for the elderly and disabled had been trying to raise awareness for: Canada has been leaving them behind. Despite having given their life to build this incredible nation, our most vulnerable citizens have been overlooked.
Despite wide criticism, the Liberals passed C-7, a bill that increases our elderly and disabled communities’ access to euthanasia. The Liberals put their needs aside and removed many of the safeguards in place that now make them more vulnerable to being taken advantage of.
A society that does not protect the disabled, the elderly, and the vulnerable is not a society that can call itself just or compassionate.
Tamara will fight for the rights of our elderly and disabled communities.
As a long-time advocate, she has been at the forefront of the fight for better palliative care. Prioritizing care and compassion over politics and convenience, she has been pushing for an approach that puts the value and worth of our elderly and disabled at the forefront.
