Sask. NDP proposes "Senior's Bill of Rights"

"The Saskatchewan NDP wants to establish a senior’s bill of rights to fix senior citizen funding shortfalls and poor home care standards, which are the result of a negligent Saskatchewan Party, says Opposition health critic Judy Junor.

Establishing a senior’s bill of rights would force the government to follow broad principals of respect, dignity and economic security. A bill of rights would be legislated, but wouldn’t include hard numbers for targets to ensure a certain level of quality, said Junor at a Thursday morning media conference in Saskatoon."

I'm not sure that this is going to be the game changer that the Sask NDP hopes it will be, but it might be a start to gaining some ground with elderly Saskatchewan voters.
