No respect for seniors

To the editor:

Re: Senior Has Plan For Better Deal From BC gov’t, July 15 Capital News.

The scary part of Mr. Taylor's plan is that it is true.

Criminals are treated with more respect and receive more perks than the lonely seniors living in care homes.

My mom is one of the many seniors who pay $1600 per month. She does get good care but the prisoners get good care too and don't pay anything!

Shame on our society.
